Default E46 M3 Owners Manuals

I thought it'd be a good idea to post up these owners manuals. Anyone looking to buy an M3 or anyone who has a question about operation of something on the car should take a look at these.

Bare in mind they are USA manuals but they can't differ too much from our UK ones.Manuals are courtesy of www.linquist.net.

Iam Looking for a manual for my Business radio cassette, I have the manual for the Business Radio CD and although it helps,its not the correct one, Ive searched high and low but have not been successful.
Iam suprised as the unit seems quite common in many M3`s.

Try giving your main dealer a call - see how much they charge if you get no luck looking on the web. I just had a quick look and could only find the CD one here. Or you could try emailing the guy at linquist.net - he may be able to track it down.

Hi Suraj, Thanks for your reply, I have the CD Manual and I was keeping the Main dealer as a last resort...but the idea about emailing Linquiste is a good thought, he seems to have alot of resources...Nice One mate

Yep, I've got no idea where he's got them from but he's done everyone a good favour doing it. Let us know if you get it so I can add it to the list

Hi Suraj, Thanks for your reply.
As of yet Ive not had any Luck ... But I did find this Link to a site with BMW Wiring Diagrams and it looks like it might be worthwhile.
Ive included a Link:

Can anyone provide the part number of the Owners Handbook for a European spec 2004 E46 manual M3 Coupe? Should be on page 4.

Cheers.

Thanks but no need - the place I got the car from sent me the right manual for free. Impressed, particularly as it is a franchised dealer (UK).

Part Number is 01 41 0 158 489 English VIII/04

Was there a manual that described how to use the phone blue tooth capability, as I have the buttons on the steering wheel on my 2001 M3 but cannot find anything in the manual.
