I must have misunderstood your original post. The way you typed it, it looks like you tried to replace the starter yourself when the car wouldn't start up. Was this a BMW dealership you bought the car from? If so, was it a CPO?
That sure is nice to have all that fixed for free!
What about the passenger side rear window not automatically rolling up. Is that working again?
Here is the website for the vehicle's users manuals: E46 Manuals | The Web Page of Kristopher Linquist
You can also get user manuals from eBay, but it seems like your dealer may get you a copy of the manuals, since they are willing to replace a starter and everything for you for free.
