POST YOUR THREAD IN THE CORRECT FORUM

The General Discussion forum is NOT a catch-all.

Please post your topic in the correct subforum.

Technical questions do not belong in General Discussion, neither do body kit or wheel fitment questions. If you don't know where to ask your question, post it in General Technical and we'll move it to the appropriate subforum if necessary.

This helps keep R3VLimited nice and organized so others can more easily find what they are looking for.

Thank you,
R3V Staff

        A good question, but unfortunately, the reason is proprietary. If we did have information for the public, we definitely would share it on our site. So, for now, I have been no help, but thought you deserved a prompt reply."

        So it's a complete mystery...
        It's not a mystery at all. He stated the reason. The information on servicing an m42 is proprietary. It's all available through other means like the BMW shop manuals, however Bentley doesn't own that information so they can't use it. At this point, they won't go back and disassemble a 318i to add info on an m42, especially when an e36 manual paired with an e30 manual probably covers everything you need.

          Doesn't it describe most procedures like this: "Use the special BMW tool XXXX, then use the special BMW tool YYYY"?
          The tool XXXX costs $800, the tool YYYY $500.
