Free Online ETK (parts #s & diagrams) system
 
FYI: The BMW Mobile Traditions ETK is available FREE online. This is the same parts system that BMW Dealers use, except it is missing the pricing and linkage to warehouse(s) for parts availability, etc. It is also available on CD ($40) at BMW dealers and several of the popular online parts houses. The ETK covers older BMW models like the 2002, E12 etc.

BMW's site makes it a little tough to provide a direct link to the Online ETK, but if you go to...
http://www.bmw.com/generic/com/en/fa...ion/index.html

Then:
* Click on Parts Supply
* Select Historic Parts catalog (in the popup menu)
* The click on the little grey "No Online!" below the description of the CD contents...

...you will get to a screen that allows you to Register. Don't get excited yet, the response by email with a Login ID took nearly 24 hrs in my case.

The exploded parts diagram graphics in the online version are the 'same' as the commercial CD BUT much better resolution when you pop them up in the separate (graphics+) window. Even better you can then capture them and build a mini exploded diagram catalog for any rebuild or repair project. All in all, the free Online version is much better than the commercial CD if you have a broadband connection.

Can you get free ETK online for NEWER models such as 2001-2003 E39 ?

Woohoo! I wonder if it covers late E24s. I know that on the CD ETK, E24s are in the Mobile Tradition area.

I don't think so. AFAIK Mobile Traditions is BMW's support for older model BMWs that might otherwise not have commercially available resources (e.g. parts lists, repair manuals, etc.). I think both the free online ETK and the commercial ETK on CD only cover 'historic' models.

Is there a maximum as to how many threads can be used to plug realoem.com? I get it, I get it.

It's starting to sound like Howard Stern guests who keep mentioning their websites.

No, there is no maximum.
OK, you got it, you got it.
But he didn't, he didn't.
That's why he was asking, he was asking.
Have a good day, have a good day.
And for god's sakes, watch what you're eating.
I didn't. And see what happened to me? :eeps:
