Just my ...I've owned several Clymer manuals and have always felt that they are a great second resource. But I ALWAYS buy the OEM shop manual first. Food for thought.

Clymer would have the wiring diagragms. As for the "quick tips on fixing", that's what bmwlt.com is for!

I have both the Clymer and the OEM CD-ROM. The Clymer is far better than the CDROM. Buy the book and be pleasantly surprised.

I think I've said this before on this forum - if I could only have one service manual it would be the Clymer. Frankly, I think it is a better source and is easier to use than the CD. That being said, I ain't gonna part with either of them as having two sources is always better than having only one. Duh! Of course - there are THREE sources counting this forum! So, I ain't gonna part with ANY of them!

Thanks, shipping about the same as sales tax I would have had to pay here, assuming dealer had it, so I saved approx $17. I Appreciate it!
