And I freakin can't even reply at the .ORG to get more ppl when people posted saying they were happy to receive their manuals from the group buy... damnit! tried e46fanatics but i think they either already bought it or were not interested.

And of course this board doesn't help coz like pretty much everybody here either already did the GB, already bought the manual, or don't own an E46 non-M... damnit!

How can i freakin' get FOUR more people to sign up??? any suggestions??

How much would it cost?
How much is the shipping (regular)?

When would it ship?

Hey Andrew,

Sorry I did not get your email sooner about the Bentley manual purchase! I am on vacation in California right now for 3 weeks! I suppose it might be quite useful to have one with a 323Ci and if I get a 330i sometime in the future. When is the deadline for purchase?

What exactly is the Bentley manual? A service manual?

Yup. And it was just published for the E46.

If I still had an E46, I'd have been first in line. But I already have a Bentley manual for the E36.

Amazon, due to their incredibly retarded system, hasn't shipped my order yet. I'll do the GP and cancel my Amazon order.

Email me all the detail, and I'll try and get a paypal payment out to you next week.

seriously? chris told ya he got 19 already? nice! one more! too bad my buddy tunkz here just traded in his 328Ci for a 2001 Z3 3.0 Step. He got a good deal, $5k total out the door, the Z3 was practically brand new and only had 7k miles.

i think he'll eventually regret getting an automatic like i am now... haha...

we test drove a Z3 3.0 manual a while back and that was very impressive, handled like a Porsche.

And the newsgroups have more noobs than bimmer.org. At either place you won't have much luck with it.

My suggestion would be to discreetly email some of the regulars on the bimmer.org board that you think might be interested, but didn't have a chance to see your post before Charlie and Alan removed it. All you need is one more. :)

Sorry I didn't get back to you or Chris, but I'm already on vacation (2,500 miles so far, 2 small windshield chips and 3 really small chips in the paint -- gotta love New Mexico and Arkansas roads).

Anyway, I'll still take one if it's useful for the 2002 model 330i. Can't see much changes, but also don't need more dead trees that I would read/use.

...I assume it will apply to a 2002. I just love taking things apart. Please, e-mail me w/details.

Thanks, Will

I'd sign up for the GB, but I'm not sure how much it applies to a 2002 E46. It's a lot of money, and their web site explicitly states that it applies to the first E46s up through 2001 models. But, really, can all that much have changed from 2001 to 2002, besides some aesthetics?

I think the only thing that changed in 2002 as it would relate to the manual is the BiXenons & auto-on headlights? outside of aesthetics of course.

Yeah, same thing happened to The HACK, he cancelled his AMZN order and ordered his with the GB last Thursday. =)

I've emailed you the details.

Your car has changed my mind on the 2002 facelift-- the sp bumper makes all the difference! Love that electric red too- BMW finally dropped their ugly 80's style orangy red.
