Bought First F10 535I... Need some advice

Hello everyone few days ago I have bought a first 2012 F10 535I, I had E60 530D 2004...
I know its big jump, its another century...
So that F10, which i have bought, has driver airbags deployed (roof airbag is not deployed), but there is not any damage on exterior... i think owner bumped in huge pothole... Car does not starts/runs... I have read on this forum, there is system, that controls starter, injectors, or alternator which blocks them from working, because don't caught fire after crash... how can i fix this? someone wrote that airbag module needs to be replaced... and there is one fuse near positive wire, near battery, which "kills itself" after crash if anyone knows how to solve this problems, please help me

and after that, that's what i am going to do:
Change R19 M Sport Wheels with - HRE P101 or S101 replica (it costs too much)
Change front M Sport bumper with M5 Style bumper, Remove fog lights
Change Rear diffuser with replica Vorsteiner diffuser
Change stock exhaust tips with Akrapovic quad exhaust carbon tips
Remove/Change Stock exhaust with some sport exhaust for some nice music
Cut out M5 Style grills at fenders and remove ugly chrome add-on
Change Black kidney hood grills with M5 Style hood grills
Change Intake or/and Air filter with BMS or aFe Intake or Filter...
Tint Rear Passenger windows at 80% and rear windscreen at 100% (i dont know if that % is not allowed in us, but its legal in my country)
Add lip under side skirts
Add front bumper lip...
Add Rear trunk spoiler (I cant decide which one )
Wrap black vinyl on outside door handle moldings and on rear bumper reflectors....
Wrap or change interior wood trim with carbon trim...
Wrap Black vinyl on mirrors...
Code some functions which i want
and finally do some bad#ss wax for bright and shiny color ^_^

So car is at California, i am in Georgia (Country, not state) its approximately 8000 miles away from me... it ships with boat, company said that car would deliver in 2-2.5 month... its hard to wait for her... she's my princess ^_^

I will post when car would deliver and then start "Project"

Thanks for reading

Isnt there a 535i in Europe that is closer. You are buying a car which does not run and shipped 8000 miles? There has to be something for you here.


As for your problem, all BMW have a battery safety terminal. After an accident and airbag deploy, the terminal disconnects from the battery and alternator. I have not done it but you would need just to push the cable back to the socket. It would run but you need to replace the BST due to an airbag light.

I would say get the car running first! As far as the mods go stick with doing the MSPORT conversion vs the M5 conversion as that's seems to be more acceptable with other BMW enthusiast. I know its your car and you should do whatever you want but there's also those members who will give you a hard time about it.

Yikes.

Also, the tint percentage you seem to want is effectively clear (100%). Tint percentages are measured by the amount of light transmission, so if you're going for the darkest look, that would be 5% (limo) tint.

In my country, police counts it with darkness, so 100% is darkest... i think counting "style" which you said is better (for me)...

Thanks for answer, i appreciate it

Wouldn't 100% darkness (0% Tint) effectively make the window useless. Basically putting a sheet of metal in between. Unless 100% darkness means a 5%. Then that makes sense.
