    BMW TIS

    Good afternoon all,

    Here is a link to BMW TIS I came across. It's essentially an interactive repair manual.

    The torrent link is here:

    Enjoy.

    DO NOT CLICK THE GIANT DOWNLOAD BUTTON, IT GOES TO A PAGE THAT SAYS "DOWNLOAD TORRENT", NOT THE TORENT.

    Downloading now, on my tablet no less. This could be huge. I had access to all the Nissan factory service manuals when I owned a Maxima, and those documents were really a wealth of knowledge.

    run with daemon tools

    question for anyone who knows... how do i read these files?

    it's just folders within folders, nothing to install on this ISO

    anyone?

    running setup.exe in /win95/BMW doesn't work

    do i have to run under win95 or something?

    sorry for the spam

    and thanks to @Tzu for finding it

    but the software gets a solid 2/10 for usability (1 for existing, 1 for not crashing)

    the information contained gets a 1/10 for usefulness.. it has LESS information avialable on the N54 and N54 issues than easily googleable or stickies found on the major forums

    it does NOT contain in depth technical information on any subsystem at all.it's a 1.4gb download, and contains MAYBE 20mb of data. i have NO IDEA what makes up the file size, it's mind boggling. it's all plaintext no photos, 8 bits per letter!

    if this is what BMW uses for their service departments.. it's no wonder stuff goes wrong. woah.

    ED: sorry, i'll make it a 2/10, having things like torque specs can be handy if you have no other reference.

    i really hoped it would contain some nice detailed wiring/electronics information... nothing!

    Gents,

    i have the dvd, not the torrrent, but it has to be installed, not browsed, and has to be 32bit only.

    it includes drawings, photos, step by step instructions and wiring diagrams and pin outs.

    my dvd came on a set of 3 dvds, so 12+gb - how big is this torrent?

    Flinchy, maybe were looking at two different things? IIRC, there was a small guide inside the ISO on how to install the software. Open with powerISO or Daemon Tools and mount, install dvd on local machine and some sort of cracked authentication process. I can pull up how to replace turbos for instance, and it will denote all previous steps which are required to be done (remove so-and-so for access), with pictures no worse than a bently manual and all torque specs. Maybe because its similar to manuals I use at work that I find it intuitive.

    how do you pull up said guide? What menu do you go to? And wht selections?

    i have no pics, or even a guide anything close to that Click here to enlarge

    i installed the sys* software off the mounted iso, then installed the tis from said mounted dvd cos the sys* softwares 'install' dropdown box (no authentication anything) - then all i can get by browsing to e9x n54 is old tech bulletins and basic tech specs (bore/stroke for example)

    and an alternate 'troubleshooting' fault finder thing which isn't much more useful

    I'm having issue's installing it too. I installed the Sysadm and when I went to TIS/Install it gave me an empty error. I guess I'll mess with it more tonight.

    I sure can use this too, I have a loose ground or something making my truck lock malfunction and my right tail light is flashing club style. Need some schematics to track it down.

    If you still have the iso mounted, should be able to install automatically

    If you manage to find a schematic PLEASE let me know, i can't find anything even close to that specific after over an hour of moving through menus Click here to enlarge

    Guys, I'll have another look at it tongiht and try to reinstall it so I can make an install guide or something. It may require Win XP 32-bit to operate and works fine on my machine.

    I got it installed and working on windows 7 32-bit, but am really disappointed with the level of detail TIS goes into. It might be a useful reference for tightening torques, but other than that, it's not all that great. For instance I couldn't find any information on setting backlash in the differential, or a list of shims, thicknesses, and part number. It went over removing the pumpkin from the vehicle, but nothing about servicing the inside of the pumpkin. Also nothing about rebuilding the ZF auto. I guess that's because BMW service techs just remove these parts from the vehicle as assemblies, and replace them as assemblies. It appears to contain information that any experienced person already knows. It also reference a nice collection of specialty tools that I am sure are too expensive to be economical for shade tree mechanics.

    And it is slow as $#@!. For a program that pretty much just reads files from a database, it is dreadful.

    BTW, nice timing on the post. Is it a coincidence that the tallying for the turbo giveaway also started yesterday? Click here to enlarge

    Pretty sure its slow because youre running it on 7, and if my memory serves me right it's supposed to be run on XP (mine functions instantly). You're right on the assembly part, being that BMW techs will not dismantle a transmission to repair it. They send it to an overhaul facility to do that so they wont include those instructions in the program. Don't ask it to do too much, I said it's just a program like a bently manual.
