Seriously though I always have it in a plastic tub that seals, so it really doesn't make the car damp/smell. I do try to take it out and rinse if theres no waves for a few days, but if I'm surfing consecutive days I can't be arsed. I wear my suits out before they have a chance rot, so its not like I'm shortening the life really..
Keeping a suit wet will actually increase it's lifespan, so if you can face the dampness while suiting up for a dawnie, then go for it.
A few guys round here tip a hot water bottle/flask of warm water into their suits before putting them on. Others put their suits on in the shower before heading out for a surf (not recommended if you live more than a short drive from the beach!)
I still like a nice dry suit, so I roll my suit up between two old towels and squash the excess water out by walking over it - far quicker than one of those hangair gadgets.
As for boots and gloves, like Danny said, they don't really dry in the winter and it's not a prob for those fleeting seconds of discomfort before paddling out.
