The smell is from Cosmoline, a protective, hard to remove wax that is used for rust prevention. Many European auto companies use it.

The smell is way less prevalent in newer cars, but anything around the e30 era is actually impressively pungent.

My F30 barely has the smell, I don't understand how the smell is somehow transferring to your hair and clothes. Maybe you found out you have body odor that smells like sweet wax?
