Question BMW help - losing faith!

I was hoping somebody might be able to help explain to me some solutions to some of the problems that I have with my BMW 316. There seem to be so many I am beginning to lose my faith in restoring the car which is a shame because I feel that they are such nice cars. My first problem (other than the exhaust being completely *#*#*#) is that the engine will completely cut out as soon as I turn the heating temperature nob down to the coldest :S and that powers 1,2 and 3 do not work on the heater, only 4. I would be so grateful if somebody could suggest something that I could try as I know very little about cars and am hoping to have restored before I am seventeen in July ready to drive.

Thank you,

Ryan

Hehe yeah, well, better than nothing, or a three wheeler. Only needs a bit of work and then it should be running like new again, fingers crossed.
