I had a smell that kinda smelled like bad Indian food mixed with gym socks. Took the car to BMW and the tech just sprayed a disinfectant / anti fungal into the hvac system. The smell lingered a bit, so the next time I opened my ecu, I took the opportunity to clean out the hvac system which I needed to take off to access the ecu anyway. It's right up top, and very easy to clean yourself. Really, you usually don't even need to take it apart to spray stuff in it, but you can easily scrub the whole thing if you want to, just follow a JB4 install guide up to the part where you remove the hvac stuff.
