Obd ii codes '99 e46 need help!!!!!!!

I am brand new to this site so bare with me. I own a e46 '99 with high miles for $1300. It sounds like a great price but of course there's an even bigger price to pay. I recently had a lot of work done to it such as new hubs, steering knuckles,valve cover gasket kit, and new bearing for the hubs. There are still a lot of things wrong like some of the gauges in the dash not working properly, even tho they were working properly when I purchased it. That may be due to a wiring issue. The driveshaft I'm sure needs replaced because of the thumping I hear when accelerating. It also has a loud clunking when accelerating which may be due to the guibo needing replaced. But anyways I had a smog center run the motor with an OBD II scanner and the attachment I included shows it all. If anyone can help me out with this it would be greatly appreciated. I know it's a lot to work with but for the price I got it for and my willing to put the money into fixing it I honestly believe I would have a lot of fun with this car. And again, I'm new to the e46 community so it may explain my lack of knowledge about the car in general. Thank you guys again

If you are going to pay someone to fix everything you are gonna be poor. I picked up an ODB-II reader off Amazon, I think it was around $20. I determined that the misfire codes were do to bad coil packs by switching them to cylinders that weren't throwing codes and then rescanning. Good luck with your new car.
