I found one chapter last night that I attached in another thread, targeted to a specific question about putting X3 in neutral, with and w/o power. Later I found the complete set and was going to post them. Glad I didn't duplicate. It's a good find and will expand on some things that probably should be in the rather light Owner's Manual. Maybe it could become a "Sticky".

Excellent source of information, will no doubt prove invaluable when 'debating" any issues with the dealerships.

These are nice, thank you. The manuals supplied with the car are poor. More energy needs to be devoted to them since technology is supposed to be one of the selling points of BMW. The manuals should be in color with photos rather than drawings. Their writing style and organization also needs improvement.

Nice pdfs, thanks for posting. Worth posting this as a reply on the sticky "BMW X3 Instruction Videos and Electronic Manual"

I understand there is a similar technical training document for the N55 engine. Does anybody have access to that one?

Do you mean N20 (4-cyl)? I think the manual cover N55.

No, I'm interested in the 35i 6 cylinder. At the beginning of the "Powertrain" chapter posted above, it says, "Information regarding the N55 Engine can be found in the N55 engine ST916 training material." That's the one I'm looking for.

It's on several BMW forums, including E90POST. Google "ST916 N55 ENGINE E90POST" and you'll find it.

I saw that one but it was dated 2010 and didn't list X3 as a vehicle in one of the tables. Maybe it still applies.

It should still apply. The F25 35i uses the N55B30M0 engine described in the document. If there were any significant change in the engine it would be a N55B30Mx, where "x" would be a different revision number.

I am attaching a screen shot, not sure if it's limited to US Playstore...

It's called "BMW Driver's Guide (X Models)".
