Which Haynes manual for my BMW?

Hi guys, I'm totally confused as to which Haynes manual (UK) I need for my BMW.

I just bought a BMW 323i Touring, it is an R reg 1997. (don't ask me what E number it is, I don't know what E36 etc is?).

Anyway, acording to the local car accessories shop and the Haynes web site then jumped from 1996 to 1998 with their manuals and didn't do one for my model? wierd.

Can anyone advise.

Cheers.

Definitely download the manual from here. A Haynes manual can't even compare to a Bentley.

The Bentley manual covers all E36 vehicles. You car is indeed an E36. Get the E36 Bentley BMW 3 Series Repair manual.

That link is not a file, just another board like this, only in Chinese???

Click on it and see what I mean.

Can anyone email me the file?

well it can't be a fault witht he zip file cause the file isn't even zipped, it's pdf, lol. also you said you wanted the haynes manual and it is the 7.2MB file, not the 92.7MB file, also many people have downloaded all of these files from me already and said they worked and thanks so i know it's not my server. just make sure you know where you are saving the file, you could be miss placing it. i can email you the haynes file if thats the one you wnat just pm me you email addy or soemthing, and if you want the 92.7MB file just try it again.

cheers.
