I have an N62 4.4 2005. Do you know how to get the manual for that engine. These are pretty thorough guids for the newer engines. Thanks.

I saw that you posted the 545 engine but not the 550. Are they the same?

I still only see the N62B44 (545/645/745) engine listed, is there one for the N62B48 (550/650/750)? They are very similar, but slightly different. (like 4.4L vs 4.8L)

Do you need specific specs on something?

Nothing specific, just trying to plan ahead for the eventual "what if". I appreciate you finding these, they are VERY helpful.

Is there anything available for diesels? In particular e60 525d? I think it's an m57? Can't remember off the top of my head.

I have some annoying misfire symptoms but I know diesels aren't supposed to misfire.

Mein Auto: 2006 530 XIT
E61 woes - won't go!

Your information is invaluable, thanks! Does anyone have a suggestion regarding the following; bought a 2006 530 XIT a few weeks ago and received one key that did not work as a remote (and the stereo/seats/mirrors would not retain memory settings). Ordered another one from BMW Calgary ($814) and it would not program. Removed, cleaned and replaces the Diversity Antenna Amp and now the car will not start. The subnroof, entertainment system (et al), back up lights and third brake all are all not functioning either. Battery and fuses are 100%. My best 'guess' is that I broke/blew the Terminal 30 g Relay so I have ordered one but it's days away. Is that relay testable?
Greatly appreciate any suggestions!

Thx
Larry

I found a couple more pdf links but I didn't want to information overload. This is another link with E60 pdfs that may help - I haven't looked at them yet & don't know if they are similar to what I've already posted.
