I want to learn all of the technical terms behind engines, suspension, etc. Basically I wanna know the basics about my car and what they mean.

Can anyone provide a good book, web-sie, etc? Thanks.

i don't know how technical you want to get... however, for the simple home mechanic that i'd like to see myself described, i find haynes manual very informative for a $15 book.

Yup, I just ordered "Haynes BMW 3-Series: 1992-1998 ... " from Amazon for a little over $13. Let's hope it does the trick.
