Car has been sitting for a year
I have a 2001 bmw 325ci, it sat for a year while I was deployed. Won't start, just gonna get a new battery. What do u guys suggest I do maintenance wise on the car before I try running it?

Just get a battery and see if it will run and get new gas in it asap.

Shopping list, new battery, fresh gas, oil change.

Yeah I figured that part was obvious but should I do a whole flush. Brake lines, radiator, change the tranny fluid and such?

Replace as many of the fluids as you can.

A year is not THAT long - battery, oil change, new gas should be fine. Then drive it gently for the first hour, make sure everything is working, brakes, etc.
