My question, before you go ahead and have this work done is, is the smell more or less predominant when you are using cold air, hot air, or does it make no difference?
Most local mechanics don't understand foreigner's demands. They would typically see you in your March and think "He drives a cheap car. He won't want to spend any money on repairs, so I will tell him not to fix it."
These types of issues will always be more apparent, or common when:
1) Commonly parking in humid areas. (switch to the fresh-air position when parking up for the night.)
3) Always running the heater/cooler systems with the "recycle" position selected, and rarely changing to "fresh-air" position. (see solution 1)
so I suggest trying one or two, especially the opening of the fresh-air vents, and leaving the windows open a touch, with the car in direct sunlight.

The problem ONLY occurs when the heater is on.
