But neither situation could be that terrible. If you have blowby, then rings aren't that expensive, but its a few hundred in parts to do because you have to pull the head and drop the oil pan. Valves, cheaper.
Re: blue smoke coming out of my muffler (volkstallion)
When are you getting blue smoke? At all times? Under hard acceleration? Under deceleration?
At startup - valve seals
At all times - rings
Under hard acceleration - rings
Under decelration - vavle seals
None of these are "good", per se.

first check the compression. You might have oil getting to the air filter box and getting burned. Only use 4 qts of oil not 4.7. VW revised it back in 88
All VW oil pans for 1.8L engines (2L as well?) are identical, I thought, and hold 4.7 quarts of oil if you change the oil filter. If you don't, its 4.2 quarts. When I changed my oil and filter and put in 4.7 quarts, it was perfect on the dipstick mark and didn't burn a thing. Although manuals are wrong from time to time, I know the Bentley for my Corrado is not.
