Owner's Manual

Is it just me, or does the current model's owner's manual just suck? I just took delivery of a 2011 X3 3.5, rplacing an '0 X3 3.0. Granted, the technical content of teh F25 is an order of magnitude beyond the E83, and the personalization/configuration capabilites are impressive (at least in concept -),but, geez, it ain't easy . . . .

I'm a veteran of 30+ years in the software busines ranging from mainframes & supercomputers to PCs & PDAs, and I find it to be just plain uninformative.

I did download the electronic version with the hypoerlinks, so at least you don't have to stick 3-4 fingers in 3-4 different pages to figure stuff out, but I find myself just hacking away until the actual workings are clear. It's taken a couple of evenings so far, and I'm not done yet . . .
