Post 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...

* 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... 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.
