The book is huge and equal to any coffee table book in size and heft. People thumb through it, get a glazed look and put it down. Quite imposing.
Reading through brake replacement and basic maintenance is not quite as easy as it could be, but it is there. Some things are glossed over like the recommended every two years brake fluid replacement, when it is something that can be done by many people if explained properly.
I prefer good line drawings to low resolution photos. Very low resolution in some cases. Does it really cost more to print with some resolution?
If it was up to me, I would have a separate section that was nothing but maintenance and common mechanical repairs, like brakes, belts and hoses. As it is you have to go through the book to find each repair. The good news is that the index is very good and in time you get to the section you need.
It is nice that it just covers the same model car, the X5, and not a whole bunch of sedans and such. This focused approach makes the book quite useable and unlike manuals I have used for other cars in the past.
The book is so nice that I am afraid of getting it dirty out in the garage. My plan is to scan the pages I am using and leave the book inside.
I had a reprieve of a few years of warranty, but now I am back to fixing and maintaining my cars again. This book was a no-brainer to make this a good experience.
My '05 X5 is a fine vehicle, the best car I have ever owned, and almost totally reliable. I believe I can get a couple more years out of it at least at fairly minimal expense.
It not a book that can help you replace things or test to see if things aren't working correctly.
It was to much money to spend.
Have owned the Bentley manuals for the e34 and e39 and all were great. They have helped me fix stuff and find faults that no single auto repair shop was able to fix.
