newbie w/ 318is

just got a very cool slammed '94 318is with 19's on it. was a theft recovery, needs a lot of bodywork, new front bumper/door handles/ignition etc. but overall a pretty sweet car. being I am the new owner and cannot find the original owner it has been interesting trying to figure out the mess of wiring etc. it apparently had a huge stereo system in it as well as a whacked out security system. as of right now it has a main power on switch and pushbutton start which is working well.

I am 42 now and figure its almost time to grow up a bit so I think I will take out the autoloc flamethrower that is in the ashtray lol........ I would like to find out more about the wild full stainless exhaust system and see if I can quiet it down a bit though so will be asking for help along the way thanks.

it has a flip down video monitor in the headliner, but nothing to give a signal to it as the stereo was "borrowed" quite forcibly. So I am looking for a dvd player/in dash unit that has outputs if anyone has a great one kicking around, ideally one with a hidden screen as well.
anywayz will post some pics asap thanks

Why do you have a theft recovery and not the original owner? The wing? It's basically ricer! It's gotta go! And please do the exhaust repair...

theft recovery

good buddy of mine works for a huge towing/recovery/storage facility in vancouver bc, canada and gets a lot of stolen recovery, towing and storage vehicles/ bikes that just get left and eventually the customers/insurance companies pay the storage or write them off........................good deals for some. I got a good deal. you tell me whether $2500 for this car was a good deal? no leans or claims against it free and clear title from the province etc.
there is a whole whack of work done to the engine and suspension as well.

No leans or claims against it? How do you not know if this deal is good? And with all the work you state was done on it?

sorry

I was just being sarcastic, of course I know it was a great deal, that was why I picked it up. I was just looking for some others input as to whether the wing should stay or not. the front bumper was also cut off with a skillsaw apparently to steal the carbon fiber bottom lip it "had". so now I am trying to find a set of sideskirts and an M3 style front bumper cover for it to try and get it looking like a bmw again instead of a rice burner.
