Sounds like stale water in the air conditioner evaporator box. There should be a drain tube to the underside of the car - it may be plugged up somewhere.
If it smells worst when you first turn on the air, then that's it. I would get the dealer to look at it under warranty.

: Whenever my 98 540 sits for overnight or for a few hours, there is a stale odor when I open the door. No water is getting in so I don't think it's moister.
: Any thoughts?
