obd code HELP

hi there new to this forum stuff so bare with me
my husband & I are suckers for the 7 serie BMW - we own currently a 2000 750il with 84k on it. we are experiencing a service engine soon situation & need to get the car inspected end of the month. we live in a remote area with limited mechanics to service this car. nearest dealer 2hrs - & very expensive$$
we did find a local person who claims specialty in bmw audi volvo etc
he did a check on the car and say sit needs its 80k tuneup before we can determine the exact malfunction to get the light off on the dash. also went on to suggest that we sell the car at auction and move along. not really interested in going that route. these are the codes
note at the bottom says total of 28 OBD II

couple of things - this car is not used too much this time of year however when we want to use it is nice to, so what do all these things mean - are we screwed lol. can the dash be reset or bypassed? best scenario for us is to get the car inpsected and peck away at the list of issues with the car, there are a couple other things going on with it - like the self leveling suspensionass end of the car is jacked high rides worse than our antuqie fladbed )
the guesstimate on the tuneup from the guy is about $2k with his labor. apparently you can only buy the parts thru BMW or remanufactured out of Germany?
so some advise here would be appreciated and if you have any ideas on how I translate these codes to english --- much appreciates
