Other than the added-on fuse beside the brake booster, the wiring looks unmolested at a glance. I'd figure out where that wire leads to.

Those 3 blue hoses do not look like anything from the factory that I've ever seen. I would find out where those go ASAP, especially the one that's just open.
I'm hoping its still stock. (325i) Where is the casting located on the block? The double temp sensor on the radiator is also cut. (wires) I believe that is for the AC correct? or is that a aux fan sensor? I will try and figure out what those blue hoses are for. I want to rip them off and make it factory but it's hard because I don't have a diagram for the car. I hope the oil and coolant leak are an easy/cheap fix. I want to have this thing running top in the summer. Thanks for all your help.

E30 in progress.
