    Honestly? Get another car.

    Removing smoke smell is nearly impossible. You might want to call professional detailing supply houses in your area to see if they can order (or sell) you a deodorizer bomb (kind of like a bug bomb). If not, then you need to disassemble all the air ducting in the car and completely clean them, remove the seats and clean under them, remove the carpets and clean any matting underneath, etc.

    Sorry, there is just no easy route.
