Not sure if smelling like oil will give me the impression of going fast but I like the thinking :)

Not sure this is speaking to the right target... I would wager the mass majority of BMW owners have never a) put their own oil in their vehicle b) have no idea what 15w-50 is.

This is a recycled idea. Way preferred the original Burger King cologne idea from a few years ago.

Stinking like a grease monkey after a day of hard work under a car is not what BMW M owners desire. Smell of burnt tires, maybe.
