My car is a 2002 325i. I use this book to analyze the 1-4 jobs required for the BMW. I study the job and wonder, is the dealership ripping me off or providing a quality service? Can I do this myself or should I outsource?
Case #1: The key system - The auto keys use a system based on the car's memory. I had a problem where the keys were operating out of order. Dealership wanted $125 to LOOK at it. Saved $50 and purchased book. Looked up key system in book. Solved key problem in 30 mintues.
Case #2: The Oil and Air Filter System - A little scary with an import because it looks different than US cars. The book explains everything, so I do these myself, saving probably $200-$400 per year.
Case #3: The Coolant Flush - Dealer wants $250 to perform flush. I was against this at first, until the book pointed out a bleed system and a website mentioned that the dealership uses a special auto tool with the bleed system to extract air from the system. Special Auto Tools are where it might be worth taking to a dealer. This case is still open, but its good to know I can do it if things get tight.
Reading this manual gives you a really good idea of how to start it. Occasional lack of details or detailed images means a little creativity or thinking can become necessary to finish the job.
Overall a really good purchase - trust me, this manual will pay for itself within one service job over the prices from the dealership.
