F10 Manual

I purchased a new 535i from an out-of-state dealer and it was trucked in to save some sales tax (lower rate here than there). Everything went well except the manual in the glove compartment is only 104 pages long, titled "Booklet for Integrated Owner's Manual." It appears very incomplete (for example there's no entry for breaking in), and is certainly shorter that the one I got on line. Is there a longer one that comes with the car?

I'm sure someone will suggest I check with the dealer. I did do that and he said he'd "look into it." Hate to sound suspicious but sounds like an evasion to me. He surely has to know what manual comes with the car (I can't help it. When I think of car salesmen and customers--at least me--I think of mongoose and cobra.)

Oh yes, impressions, later. Only have driven it 200 miles (It's my wife's car.) in a fairly brisk wind and I suspect the Integral Active Steering takes some getting used to.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes, there is a longer one that comes with the car.

If you want to know something specific, download the PDF version online from the BMWUSA.com website under owners, or whatever it is, up top.
