Default Smoking really bad

Hi, I'm thinking about purchasing a S80 T6 2000 don't know the mileage for $500.00. It's smoking like crazy and you can smell the oil. Can anyone tell me what the problem could be?

Note really. If you are not prepared to replace the motor and both turbos just leave it alone.

Probably one or both turbos due to poor maintenance. You don't want that car.

Default Bad engine?

I've got a 2003 w/ 90k miles that's been hit in the front. If you've got any contact info for the guy w/ the $500 S80, I'd love it because I'd do an engine transplant w/ my good engine.
thanks,
scott

I got the information through a friend, I will see if he still has the car and get the number for you if I can.
