I want to buy a repair manual. My dad has the Chilton manual and it jsut does not have anything that i need. Everytime I look at it for something it gives very generic advice and no pics of what i am doing. I have heard about the Bentley manual but $60 is quite a lot. Any opinions? Also I would like something that talks about interior and such not all engine, since i don't know enough about the engine to mess with it.

Don't get a Chiltons'. Get a Bentley manual. $10 to get the oil service light reset is expensive; $20 for a BMW keychain is expensive; $30 for a video game is expensive; $30 for 'stealth' parking light bulbs is expensive. Rims and ///M body kits are expensive. Not knowing something important about your vehicle can be expensive. $60 for a Bentley manual is not expensive.

Check Amazon.com -- you can probably get it for about $50 with free shipping. If you want 2 then get the Haynes also.

thanks everyone, someone pm'ed me about an electronic version they have. Hopefully they can email me and I can check it out and buy the paper manual if I like what I see. You have to have the actual manual because who wants to run back and forth to their computers.
