    Just get the Bentley manual and you will not be sorry. I don't like manuals on CD because you cannot bring them to the car without printing them. If you have a laptop, it will get dirty while you work. Plus, it is easier to read a paper manual on the can while you plan your next move.

    I agree with Paul.
    My manuals are dog eared and have notes written all over the place. And, yes, are really dirty. :)

    +6000. Get a Bentley.

    I've bought the TIS system for my car but it doesn't work very well. Naturally it arrived on a homemade burned CD with handwritten BMW TIS on it. :rolleyes:

    The Bentley has lots more useful information.
