325is couple questions

just a couple questions, tried searching but I got varying results. 95 325is coupe.

1. do I have the ASC throttle body, if so can I just remove the plate to take disable the throttle control aspect of it?

2. is it equipped with vanos?

question 1 is because I wanna have some snow fun before I repaint and lower the car next month, but I don't want a permanent delete of the ASC, or a method that involves purchasing a new part, since it'll just be for a few weekends. question 2 is just curious it.

Yes you car has a VANOS. And your car may be equipped with an ASC if you have a button above your shifter that is labeled "ASC" with a button underneath it.

I didn't see a button anywhere, so I'm guessing it doesn't. would that mean the rear wheels will continue to spin, or does something else prevent it.

If you don't have ASC+T, you have no form of traction control whatsoever (aside from your right foot). This also means you do not have the additional throttle body. You still have ABS for braking, but nothing to control wheel spin under throttle application.
