I'm not confident the file will stay at these URLs. Note that the rar is password protected to prevent Rapidshare from examining the file. The password is bmw, and that is also noted in a file inside the rar.

Anyone with their own host for this file should download it and host it, as I doubt it will stay put on these free servers for long.

I fully expect that anyone downloading this already owns the book. I do, and 2 copies of the Haynes. Give Bentley the money they deserve for an excellent manual. The only thing it was missing was CTRL-F.
can some one help me out here ?
I used the media fire link
after file extracted w/ pass word, acrobat comes up with corrupted file message. I tried on two different computers
Thanks

OK so it helps to have a current version of Adobe reader. gee it opens right up

Awesome! I'd been hoping this would turn up for a while. I own the book, but with this I can put it on my laptop and iPhone and be able to have it with me in the case that I am stuck somewhere and the book is sitting at home on my bookshelf. Being able to search is cool too. Thanks!

This is great, I dont know what happened to my bentley anyway but the binding was falling apart so this is a nice tool.

Love how the M42 is not supported, but the very first diagram on "engine management" shows the M42...
