Owner's Manual for 2015 528i Sedan? Why Not Available?

I am picking up (ED) in Munich on Oct. 2. Normally, I can download a copy of the owner's manual in advance, so I can ask some pertinent questions or request clarifications at pick-up. I have tried to get a manual since mid-July, when 2015 production started. The response I get is that "there was an error in the manual; we are trying to resolve it; we don't know when a revised (corrected) manual will be on-line".

Is this normal for BMW --- to make errors in manuals and then take 2 month into the production year to resolve it?

I just can't imagine a company of BMW's stature providing a new vehicle without a correct owner's manual.... and if the owner's manual is in print (to provide in Munich), it must be available somewhere on-line.

Can someone shed some light on this?

Mine was with the car at ED but I emailed them and received the electronic version in advance so I did not get worked up about it.

Do you think it will be different manual that was used for 2014?
Take me 10 sec to find, download and upload for you 2014 manual.
Stop complaining - concentrate on your ED planning.
Good luck!
