I get the smell only under two conditions. I give it the beans when passing someone or climbing a hill and when I drive it fast. All which to me is within reason considering the load I put on those clutch disks. I noticed the smell faintly, outside of the car, when I first drove the car when it had 12 miles on it. Put thats because the clutches weren't bedded in. I now have 17k miles on my Focus.
