E86 maintenance manual?

I am looking for a maintenance manual for a 2008 E86 Z4. Bentley only goes up to 2005 or so. Any sources?

TIA

You can find the BMW TIS DVD on eBay for not much money. You'll need a Windows XP machine to read it, however.

Straight XP machine or a VMWare virtual machine works the best.
I have tried this under Windows Virtual Machine and XP Mode for Win7 but it runs really slow...

The TIS is the BMW mechanical repair manual.
The ETK is the parts manual. Normally not needed since you can use RealOEM or Tischer.
The WDS is the BMW Electrical manual. The WDS is a HTML based system so it works under any OS. The latest version I have seen (and have) is V12

The DVD had much more. Spagetticoder, does not have the Si or ///M models. Only models with the M54 engine.

I just ordered this one. My warranty just ran out, I guess I better get busy learning some more stuff before my next service.
