Be mindful of the fact that this engine is overdue cam timing belt service. Is it still due? Was it completed properly and on-time? Or was it missed, the engine destroyed and rebuilt? Has it been flooded or in an accident> Other than these questions, it looks like a good deal to me.

Often, when I see threads similars to this one, I try to envision a scenerio where I would purchase a S80 that has a 5 cylinder motor...





















And I fail at this exercise every time.

If it has good service history and passes a PPI, then it should be a good buy.

first job is always the pcv canister, then who know what other surprises lurk, mention that and try for 3300

You should get a complete maintenance history, T5 engines are super reliable but pcv, timing belt, spark plug are somethings that would need to be taken care of.
