Repair Manual

Before I spend eighty bucks on a repair manual for my 2001 740il, I was wondering if anyone could tell me if it's a good guide with pictures for repair.

re:

Neither, it's just a great website for DIY repair in my opinion better then buying a repair manual although I do have a Bently, best price I have seen is "bimmezone.com " $80.00 US

This is my opinion:
- Do others feel the Bentley manuals are useless for some DIY tasks (1)

Start a new thread for your cosmetic phone problem. I got a TIS off e-bay and swear by it. Also have a E32 Bentley.
