That's quite a combination.


btw - one of the things I enjoy about Chicago is the diversity of the people. We have quite a large Romanian population and I have several Romanian neighbors. This is a walking city and I like that when you're standing on a street corner there's no telling what variety of languages you'll hear.

Having lived in NYC, this looks like the "normal" new car after three years in NYC...the exception being that your's is in Arkansas. Does it run with the minor sheet metal damage? (NYC standards).
Nothing can ever be perfect with our cars...minor paint blemishes, etc. Quit whining and enjoy the ride. The leather looks perfect.

Likely due to a bad wheel-speed sensor on the destroyed side. The control for the xDrive depends upon the DSC/ABS. Get all the electronics working before worrying about it.

Good luck.

+1

You don't have an ABS/DSC light?

You're Romanian? I was in Rome two years ago, loved the Romanians, but it's a shame how they've let so much of the city fall into near ruin.

I knew that. I was in Bucuresti, September 2010, enjoyed the old city very much.

You shouldn't need any BMW specific tools for what you plan on doing yourself. A nice set of 3/8" drive sockets with extensions, and the usual tool box items including Vise Grips should do it for you. Do you have Torx bits?
Once you have it disassembled you are going to have to figure out whether the unibody and subframes (like the big cradle holding the engine and transmission) are tweaked. That'll be the part we might have to help you with.

One of the post is crumpled in. We bought a replacement right post.
That's majority of the damage.

You need a computer designed to reset the codes. You can buy one from Snapon or Matco. Just give them a buzz and ask which they recommend - you don't need the most expensive one. Make sure to write down the codes before resetting them.

Goodluck with that restoration work - it will take you money and time, but in the end you should have a nice car

We have gotten most of the parts. Just need a right headlight and the airbags. Isn't there so way to reset the malfunction off the navi/radio.

No. Only an OBD II scan/reset tool compatible with BMWs (GT1 and knock-offs) can reset most codes. The iDrive can reset only maintenance timers.

Ok thanks you guys. And is there any specific type of power steering fluid that I should use? Or can I use the normal power steering fluid from advanced?
