    N54 Technical manual?

    As in the title, i'm after one, some sort of manual that literally lists every part and location (even wiring diagram if possible), that sort of thing.. i can easily identify most of what i can see, there's a few vac tubes and wires that i'm a little hazy on though (plus i don't have the vac canisters, probably other parts...), is there a place i could buy a really good one from? or even download a giant PDF?

    thanks

    If that doesn't work there are some pdf's posted here or maybe someone else can point to you to something.

    realoem doesn't contain reallly in depth stuff, just part numbers in their parts groups?

    i've pretty much decided to just buy the E9x Bentley manual, for $90 shipped, i'd assume it'll save me over $90 in mechanic costs pretty quickly (an hour's worth lol) Click here to enlarge.. apparently it's pretty amazing, too

    i've read the recent PDF's that came up, also fairly general

    I think you made the right choice, Bentley stuff is absolutely top notch.

    and maybe once i've read through the bulk of it, i'll be able to help answer OTHER peoples questions.. hahaha

    i was considering looking for a cd copy, but was advised they tend to be of much much lower quality... it's something like 1200 or 1400 pages with a couple of thousand pictures, so pretty high chance of being able to answer a fair few of my troubles Click here to enlarge

    Get the Bentley manual, it's pretty awesome. I have one collecting dust right now since I haven't needed it, but it's nice to have just incase.
