    Ever wonder why BMW dealerships make a ton of money? They have this book!

    I really like the hardback book format of this. Good service manual for all the specifications and torques and the basics on how things come apart and go back together. I go to this first to find out about any needed work on my 2004 BMW 325i. Then I head to the forum boards to get the detail tricks.

    A must have for any E46 owner, but realistically probably a enthusiast or home DIY-er, people who prefer to avoid the stealerships. It covers maintenance and repairs (lots of pictures) on every model going in depth with each of the cars systems and features. While reading, one could disassemble and reassemble an S54 engine. And as someone planing an S54 swap into a sedan down the road, this will come in very handy.

    This is a must have for anyone with an E46 BMW that wants to work on the car themselves. Everything you want to know to work on the car is right there. I use Youtube and online posts to help work on the car, butt the value of having a book you can reference in the garage while working under a car cannot be underestimated.

    If you can't or don't want to buy the factory service manual, Bentley's are the next best thing. Have been using them for over 30 years.

    Bentley is the bible for the BMW owner. This is no exception. The advent of YouTube videos complement, but cannot replace, the information in the Bentley manual. A good to own for the DIY BMW enthusiast.

    Item covers a lot of different aspects of the vehicle, but is lacking some detail in certain portions. Then again it is under a hundred bucks (one of the cheaper manuals my friends and I have).
