Oil fumes inside car

Hi, I have a problem with a smell of fumes inside my Golf. I had my garage check it over and they can't find a problem. The main details are:

1. The fumes give me a sore throat if I drive a lot on one day

2. If I close all the vents and switch off the fan there are no fumes in the car

3. I just had a full service and timing belt change

4. My garage has checked the exhaust and it looks fine

5. My garage canít find an oil leak

6. The car has only done 36k

7. It passed the MOT emissions test

Has anyone seen something like this before? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Dan

Can you determine what kind of fumes? Iím not thinking obvious places so Iíd suggest swapping the cabin filter, maybe it stinks and your brain recognizes it as a fume?

My only thought would be if your motor is compressing in the crank case. I hope not with your low milage, but its not unheard of a busted oil ring. Look under your vehicle the back bumper should be signs of oil.
