For the 5 Series Do-It-Yourself (DIY) owners, today is a good day. Bentley Publisher, regarded as producing the highest quality technical manual on the market released their E60/E61 manual. If you haven't heard of the Bentley manuals perhaps you've heard of the cheaper part story brands of Chilton or Haynes? Think of this as the M5 manual next to those two Honda Civic manuals.

The aim throughout has been simplicity and clarity, with practical explanations, step-by-step procedures and accurate specifications. Whether you're a professional or a do-it-yourself BMW owner, this manual helps you understand, care for and repair your BMW.

Check out this sample section on Front door window, removing and re-installation to get a sense of the details Bentley provides

The do-it-yourself BMW owner will find this manual indispensable as a source of detailed maintenance and repair information. Even if you have no intention of working on your vehicle, you will find that reading and owning this manual makes it possible to discuss repairs more intelligently with a professional technician.
