Question X3 (F25) Service/Repair Manual

Hi All

Does anyone know where I could find the service/repair manual for the 2011-present X3 (F25) to download or purchase?

I tried a search on here but most threads are for the 1st gen i.e. prior to 2011. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places but I'm sure someone on here knows Thanks!

Not a service manual but a good source for parts which may help: http://realoem.com/bmw/select.do

Eventually (hopefully) Bentley will come out with something - that's probably the best bet. BMW hasn't made service manuals available to the general public for a very long time now.

Yeah I agree that site is always good for actual part info. I use it to find parts for my mini.

Unfortunately it doesn't give a step by step breakdown on how to repair/replace items

I wish someone would. I find the service/repair manuals extremely useful since with other brand vehicles that I own I am usually able to diagnosis problems and know what's wrong long before dealerships do. It helps me lead them to the problem quicker

Plus minor mods are easy when I can see internal wiring diagrams and various systems.

Hopefully if anyone finds a CD/DVD or book available in the future they will let the forum know. It's a definite buy item before any mod.
