Look around, recent posts on the subject.

Also, you may have nailed why it was for sale.

No this just happened and the dealership hasn't been open since, the thing is none of these lights were on until the jump start

jump start may have been done wrong. should have charged battery. maybe charge battery, disconnect for a few then re hook up.

More than likely your battery is shot. You don't need to use a BMW battery and can use a good auto parts battery. Do some searching here and you can't miss at least 5 battery posts in the next 3 pages of threads. Once you get the battery replaced you need to have it registered as BMW uses an Intelligent Battery System (IBS) which needs to know the battery has been replaced to use the correct charging algorithm. More than likely your lights will go out after two cycles unless your jump starting crossed the plus and minus but if they did you would see a lot more issues.

What you are seeing is pretty normal for a BMW that is 6 years old...
