This is the first time I've posted up here, and I'm going to sound like a complete dumbass, but, oh well.
I recently bought a 1995 black on black 325iS. Everything was great with the car until about a week into it when the ABS and the Traction Control light came on and will not go out. It is also giving of a horrid rotten egg smell, it is on its original exhaust though, other topics addressed this, I'm just making sure.
Also, somebody has slammed my passenger seat back, and now I think the spring has been thrown from within the seat.
All in all, what I need to know is, how do I fix, or the possible causes of: ABS Light and Traction Light.
Rotten Egg/ Sulphur Smell.
Any help what so ever is appreciated.
If you live near an AutoZone or some other similar store, they can check your OBDII for you for free. One thing to watch out for is the BMW classic, "Maunfacturer Code." In other words, you won't be able to find out the exact problem from AutoZone. You can use this though....

Hey, thanks for the help. Definetly going to go check that out, really don't want to pay out the ass for it though.
The smell has been there for a while, so it is gonna be the cat. It is the original, you guys know where to get the full replacement exhaust with chrome tips for fairly inexpensive price?
And jllphan, I saw your car up on Cardomain before I even bought this car, and I've definetly gotta say, VERY well done.
I did see that you removed that damn grey from the side skirts and bumper. How much that cost you to get removed/painted?
Inevitably this is what i want done:
for the exhaust i assume your talking about stock exhaust. honestly they are quite expensive, much like cats are. chrome tips are avalible at the dealer and you can also find them through an online shop.
If you dont want to shell out the cash (not that you dont for an aftermarket exhaust, (www.bavauto.com is a good indication as to what's available as far as that goes) if you want a VERY nice sound, you can put on a cold air intake, that will not only boost HP, it'll give you that delicious sound your looking for.
