E39 Repair Manual?

I just went to the Haynes and Chilton web sites and neither of them offer a repair manual for the E39 cars, what's up with that? They have manuals for the 3-series cars.

Thanks for the info Doug. I just found a repair manual available from Bentley, and it has an appropriate Bentley price of $180.

Creo que el manual de reparacion es diferente al manual de el automovil cuando decidas vender el vehiculo. El manual automotriz luce muy bien con la venta.
