Help!!! Ignition Nightmare

i am finally getting my 1987 325is on the road after 7 months of garaging, and i have come to find out that the preveous owner had completely "Jimmy-Rigged" an alram system into the car. I was hoping that some one could help me out any way that you can. It would be really helpful if anyone can tell me where i can find an ignition wiring diagram....

Any alarm works on a few simple basics. The main thing is the ignition cut-out relay with a red and a white wires that splice into the starter wire, just remove and reconnect the orginal wires, everything else just carefully remove and tape up any open wires. Everything else is cake, unless you have a remote starter system installed then things get a little complex. Over all if you take your time and are carefull you'll have no problems.

Just avoid the urge to tug wires out.....
