2011 BMW Alpina B7 - Water Damage

Hi guys
I just bought from the auction a 2011 Alpina B7 water damage. The car seems to be ok. It was "No Start and No Run" when I bought it but we drained the engine and trasnmission oil, flushed them and replaced them with new.

Question:
What else needs to be done? Is there other stuff that we need to do before we start the car? My mechanic is scared and BMW dealer (in Canada) is not helping at all.

Sorry, I dont have anything to add, but I would love to know what you ended up doing? Have you started it yet? Im going to take a guess and say the engine hydrolocked. How much did you pay for this car? Its a ballsy move to say the least.

So far Not So Bad

Hi
Car started well but there is a Christmas tree on the Dashboard. I have all kind of lights and we are dealing with it one light at a time. I was able to drive it for 3 hours before we go back to the garage to finish the work.
I will keep you all updated once we finish everything. So far the cost is $2,100 which I find Great !!!
