Not sure what you're looking for...

The stock Owner's Manuals can be found at BMWNA: http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Content/Owner/dgh.aspx. Just pick your year and model.

I'm looking for more of a service manual than an Owner's manual. So, I was hoping a Technical Service Manual shows have to disassemble and repair parts of the car (brakes, dash, etc, etc), not how the features (idrive, window controls, etc) work.

I understand BMW may issue DVDs for their dealer techs and not manuals anymore...I'm lookng for anything like that - manuals or DVDs, whatever's possible. I heard it may still be possible to find this info, but you need to know where to look.

In the past, if people couldn't get the more accurate manufacturer-issued manuals, they sometimes relied on Haynes, etc. Any help would be appreciated !!

Thanks,
Adam

E70 Service Manual

Still hoping someone can help with ideas on how to get a technical service manual (or DVD), but in the meantime, found this link to many, many DYI topics with instructions and photos but maybe an older X5 platform......

Mein Auto: 2010 X5 3.5d
Smile Service Manual Question

I found a download for the X5 at Tradebit.com

It's not specific to the 2010 3.5d, but was the best I could find. It was about $20 and very detailed for most things. When on th Tradebit site, search for "BMW X5 2007-2010 Repair Service Manual". I'd rate it at 7/10, but there's nothing else out there, so I guess it's a 10!

Any real BMW workshop manual out there for the BMX X5 E70 ?

I'd be particularly curious to see the official list of tricks like the transmission reset for instance

From tradebit which source did you go with and was it still a 7/10?

I am about to tackle a water pump and would love to have some reference material.
