You sure it isn't mildew? It tends to happen to me in the summertime, not the winter - from humidity. The smell goes away real fast for me though - usually within the first minute.

Welcome - I'm also an Acura/Honda lover - been on AZ before it was called that back in the old acura-cl forum days :)

I agree, the TLX didn't do it for me and I ended up with a GS350 as well.

I was thinking the weight might be an issue because I wasn't sure how strong the magnet would be.

But good to know the OnePlus One works with the magnet - the Nexus 6 would probably work then.
