TIS repair manual

I'm trying to track down a version of the TIS manual that covers BMWs newer than 2008. Everything I've found online only covers up to model year '08. Any suggestions as to where to look?

Yes, I was aware that spaghetti coder got axed. But I've been looking on eBay and various torrents and still can't find anything more recent than 2008. What gives? Did BMW phase out TIS?

That must be it. Or they could be more alert to piracy of a resource that cost them millions to develop and maintain.

The official TIS is still available at bmwtis.com. Access is $30/day (24 hrs) or $250/month. Pop for a full year and you get two months free....

As Zeichen mentioned, the offical BMW TIS website sells subscriptions for $30/day. When we bought my wife's car I just set aside a day, paid for access ($25 in 2011), and downloaded everything I possibly could. You're not limited to just one model, you have access to everything. And there's always a Bentley manual.

I expect I will do the same later this year. My warranty will expire this month or next, and my largely hands-off repair policy along with it. A day or two should be more than enough to grab all I need to know about the systems I expect to maintain myself. It's a bargain, all things considered.

I had hoped that by now Bentley would have published an E90N manual that covers 2011 models (i.e., the N55). They are taking forever--if they plan to do it at all.

I bought the 2008 TIS. It came yesterday but I have not uploaded it to my computer yet. There are 4 or 5 disks (not sure if they are cds or dvds). My car is a 2009 but I think a lot of stuff will be the same. Seems worth risking $10.

Mine's an '09 too, so I considered doing the same. I also considered devoting a day to the online TIS subscription and downloading as much as possible.

Unfortunately, Bentley doesn't have anything available for my 1er.
