Mein Auto: 335i
Do I need to purchase a service manual?

I recently bought a 2010 335i but it did not come with the Owner's or Service manual. I was able to download a pdf file of the owner's manual online but could not find a downloadable file for the Service manual. I have seen them for sale online for about $90 but do I really need one? It seems like most people who've bought one was actually going to work on the car. I don't know much about cars and have no plans of getting under the hood, ever. (I'd hate to break a nail - Lol). So I'd be taking it to the dealership for regular maintenance. Do I NEED the service manual?

Maybe this is too simple, but are you planning to work on your car? If so....THIS

At one point in time, on the BMW website under the owners section, it was possible to download a PDF version of the service warranty books which came with the car. I have the pdf of an 08 but don't know if its the same. Hope that helps.
