Bought a 2003 530i (e39) for $500 a few weeks ago and I am in the process of fixing it with a friend, but there are a few issues. Any tips on what I should focus on first to get it to pass smog. The car have some water damage as we found water inside underneath driver and passenger seat. It also overheat (change out radiator), but it possible coolant reservoir might still got a leak. Ran the code today and here's what we found :
*abs check engine light on*airbag light is on*warning light is on (triangle with the !)
*brake light is on
