I have this problem. I just bought 316i 1.9L BMW (E46, manufactured 5/2000). Unfortunately the previous owner didn't gave me any owners manual, or other car documentation. I read that I can download the Owners Manual from www.bmwusa.com
Owners Circle. The problem is that my BMW is European, and my VIN was not in the bmwusa.com database (or at least that is what the site said). So I couldn't create an account, and couldn't download the Owners Manual from it.
If someone does have the Owners Manual, or can give me their account so that I can download the Owners Manual myself, I'll really appreciate it.
Thank you in advance,
