Helping Friend - 635CSi 88

My friend has a 635CSI 88 model and when he received the manuals for the vehicle, they were water damaged beyond repair.

He would LOVE to acquire a copy of these manualls, either digitally or - the old fashioned hardcopy way!!

He's chasing:

Australian Version "On-Board Computer"
"Supplementary Owner's Handbook" (Instrument Cluster)
and "635 CSI" "Supplement to Owners Handbook Australian Version"

He has tried the BMW dealerships, and online everywhere - as yet, no success. We're obviously located in Australia - we are in fact in Brisbane Queensland - if anyone has one of these - I would be quite happy to photo copy it and pay the cost - or if you're in another part of Australia - we could pay the cost of photocopying and postage. Alternatively - if you want, you can e-mail me a digital copy and I can print it for him.

Many Thanks,
Ross & Graeme.

I'll go ahead and move this to the "Classics" forum. Chances are good the fine folks over there can help.

Further to my friends dilema his car was fitted with sports coils to enhance handling and was somewhat lower, this created a negative camber with the rear wheels. A BMW dealer has informed him there is no corrective camber kit available for this model.

Surely other 635 owners with sports suspension must have encountered this problem - is there anyone that has any ideas on this?
