BMW 525i flooded e39

I just purchased this car as a parts car but before I start taking it a part I thought why not try to get it started may be I can keep it since I love the color on it ...

2001 BMW 525i 112k miles

Car was flooded but the seller claimed that the water only reached the bottom seats ..I bought the car didn't even had a battery.. Now I don't know where to start should I attempt to put a battery and try or should I do something else ?

It looks like someone tried to fix it because by the glove compartment all those computers are already disconnected and the engine oil seams to be clean carpet is kind of dry the front is dry the back is not ..

Please advice me where to began
