    Where do YOU put the owners manual? E90.

    I recently picked up an E90 335i, and there is a TON to learn about all of the little features the car has. What I haven't seen is a place to put the massive owners/ other manuals. Does it just jam into the glovebox, or is there some other pocket somewhere? It seems like with all the thought that went into everything, there would be a little manual pocket hidden somewhere. Coming from a GTI, I'm curious about this. That VW had a little sleeve in the glovebox that the manual would slip into. It made sense. I might be looking into this a little too hard, but I'm a bit nuts. Click here to enlarge Thanks guys!

    The thing weighs so much I just keep it in my desk and leave it out of the car.

    Yup, I checked it out and it works. it appears to fit right above the little tool kit. The extra weight back there will help me when it snows Click here to enlarge thanks!

    That's dedication.

    I read a few things in the manual but basically when they handed it to me at the dealership I just wanted to drive my car. The lady sat around trying to explain everything and I was like, I can figure it all out, I swear, just give me my keys.

    I have mine in the backseat behind the middle arm rest in the net. It fits well and frankly the back seats are worthless in the vert anyway.

    Mine didn't come w/one. I had to either figure things out on my own or turn to the forums/google. When I finally found the .pdf version, I printed out only the pages w/light descriptions and keep a copy in my glovebox.

    I previously owned an Audi and swore it didn't come w/a manual either, until one day the car got stolen and, when I got it back (later that day) the thieves had found the manual before I did! They stuffed it back in its place but left it hanging out - a slot under the steering wheel. Ended up being the perfect place to store my .45 while driving. Click here to enlarge

    I had mine lying around for a long while. But then I put it somewhere where I can not find it any more Click here to enlarge
    Had to go for my first service 2 months ago, could not find it anywhere.
    So no service history...
