I shall be eternally grateful to you for assisting us with this awesome manual. Here in Sunny South Africa where the steering is on the other side, we tend to hunger for information that could potentially assist us saving a few rands... This, my dear friend, will definately help me get the car back to where it SHOULD be.

Also, Bentley Manuals are definately hard to find here. I know someone who ordered on and got it stolen before he even read it. It seems our postal service has a few shady characters working there :(

Anyway, now that I have the manual (downloading it as I type, gonna take 4 hours), Im gonna search even harder for the BMW Software Ive been hunting for the last 2 years.
Pretty soon you guys will get an unexpected update to the pics I posted a few months ago. Im installing a carputer and I have it mostly figured already. All I need is to start the Fibreglass fabrication.

Once again, thanks a million...

What software do you need exactly? I might either a) have it or b) be able to get it and post it here.

hehe... Im looking for BMW TIS. Its a GREAT tool for finding EVERYTHING you need. Especially in my case, where the Bentley manual doesnt cover my car... at least not completely. Funny enough, I was JUST gonna order it on CD, when, while browsing the one I downloaded, I realised the 316i '93 is totally neglected.

Anyway, dont stress urself. I found the software on TPB but its gonna take a few weeks to download. Unfortunately, bandwidth in SA isnt exactly cheap, and our company LAN is off limits for that. They'll KILL me the fire my butt!!

Does not pertain to the diesels per se, but honestly everything aside from the engine will be the same; if you have questions pertaining to engine work I have the BMW TIS and can get you whatever instructions you need.

Did you actually manage to download it and are stuck with the install or are you having a hard time finding where to download it from?

If it's the first, what sort of operating system are you trying to install this on?

Its actually not a problem INSTALLING it... its DOWNLOADING thats a problem. See, Im trying to do this from work, and boss man isnt exactly happy about it :(
Ive found a few places to download from but its just too big to do it in 8 hours, which is all the time I have. The lines PROMISE 384 but deliver slightly more than dialup. Its been proven that its cheaper and quicker to book a ticket and board a plane to hong kong, go there, find a dvd, negotiate a decent price come back and watch it than just to download it here. Yes, we pay a fortune for ridiculous speeds here.

If I manage to get it, it doesnt matter what host it needs cos I run XP, Win7, Suse, Puppy and Mint on 1 machine. Dont ask cos it was hell getting Win 7 to play nice.

excellent suggestion I'm downloading it now and give it a whirl in the morning thanks again for the suggestion. If understand you correctly this manual I'm downloading will give me the error for all the codes as well as how to retrieve all codes which I'm sure is fairly simple.

In the left brake duct (left as in when you're sitting in the car). It goes in from the engine side and points toward the front left corner of the car.
