I've been trying to find this out too (for a mark III Golf). The smell's more noticeable in heavy traffic, I sometimes see smoke coming out of the air vents when the air's not switched on, and find condensation on the windscreen.

It seems to be a problem with the cooling system. The coolant leaks onto the engine where it's burnt off. Maybe the heater core?
