Alrighty guys...im in a real jiffy...My car a 1998 528i has been having problems lately as you probably have seen me post before and thanks to everyone for their replies and help tips. But im sick of having to ask people and i really want to learn on my own and figure out how everything in my car is put together and how every bolt is placed perfectly.

Bascially what im sayign is that I planning on buying a manual and I need advice on where and how much to spend. I found some on ebay and they were about $20 or so if you do the "buy now" option but thats the CD. Are those cds real? and for some reason some of the descriptions say that the Electrical Problems dont include the e39...so im like UGHHHH this sucks. Well since lately my trunk has had an electrical problem..thinking its a relay or something. but anwyays...im thinking about buying the paper manual also..is that worthit? I am buying the two-volume set that is about 110 bucks which isnt bad i dont think considering it was on sale from 160. So please give me some feedback on this topic.. THanks everyone and GOO BMW LOVERS!!!!!!


YOU KNOW RULE! B)

hey thanks for the reply...but i saw that manual and actually at this link

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detai...g=UTF8&v=glance

its cheaper...not by too much but it is cheaper. Which one should i get? i know the price is different but how safe is that other site and how safe is buying off amazon...well amazon actually covers you if you qualify for the insurance without having to do anything else. you dont have to pay for their insurance just qualify. so yea im not sure any ideas?

I would go with amazon, its cheaper and its a well known company so no worries about getting swindled.

I think you will be very happy with the Bentley manual for e39, its the most comprehensive manual available to the general public for your model.
