I'm in Sierra Leone and my wife bought BMW 518i and I have to (or my mechanic's in the workshop) repair the car ...
I was thinking that a workshop manual would be very useful if it is possible in English ...
The BMW is a 518i with M43 engine, built in 12/1994, saloon, manual 5gear transmission
It's not like I have not searched the net but I just do not find the correct manual or I'm just too stupid
I can only find manuals for the 518i with the M40 engine (I guess this is all just the same just a different engine and not totally useless ...) The 2nd. Manual I've found was for the American market for the 5 Series 525i or higher with 6 cylinders and useless for my needs, or not?
Do I have to get another manuel where the M43 engine is inside and then merge the two manuals?
As I told you, Iam in Africa and therefore it is a little difficult to go to the bookstore and buy the manual or to order one on ebay / Amazon... So really, I would highly appreciate a free download link, as I have no credit card or paypal or anything like that.
For your help I would be very grateful
