Friend bought a 135i from an auction
 
Friend of mine ended up buying a 135i from an auction was reported as stolen and ended up there. He was able to talk to contact the owner and find out that the car was stolen for about a week was FBO and has Jb4 on it and also had an E85 tune and apparently the thieves put 89 gas? He has no codes coming up.

He's not sure what the implications are now. Hit me up and asked me to find out what are the dangers/effects but I'm not sure myself to be honest. He tried to get into the JB4 by the steering wheel controls but it wasn't working for whatever reason ???

Now he's trying to figure out how to revert back to a 93 tune as it's been tuned for E85 and he doesn't want to run that but he's not sure how to? I'm pretty new to this platform myself and I'm trying to help him out. Also he drove the car down the street as I was with him and it seems like whenever he gets on the gas his RPM's surge but the car doesn't engage? Possible tranny slipping? What do you guys think/suggest?



On another note how do you guys think the motor sounds?

Sounds okay on my iPhone, but holy crap that thing looks like ****.

If it's stolen he should alert police and proceed from there. Don't wanna get charged with having stolen property or anything, and maybe the police can actually figure out who took the car.

I think you're having trouble following along.
