I came across this on eBay, and I wanted to know what you guys think:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...0&category=6032

It says it's on CD-R (as in burned), and that it is the same one used by BMW. Seller has a high feedback rating, but the fact that it's on CD-R seems kind of wierd to me. But it says that it is searchable, and that sounds cool.

I've been looking for something like this because I believe I need to replace my sway arm bushings, and I want to check it out to see if I can do it myself. Anyone know about those?

Let me know what you think of that manual. Thanks!

If it indeed is what it says it is, its a good deal, really no way to know though.

Copying a CD is easy enough to do these days, it very well could be legit

I bought CD's from this guy. It is indeed what it says it is and is exactly what the Dealers have. THe only problem is that it is very technical and takes a few minutes to figure out exactly how to find what you need. But once you do, it is great. Hope that helps. Cheers.
