    Hello!
    My name is Santiago and I live in URUGUAY, South America.
    Iv just bought a 1987 L6 and Im extremely delighted with the car!
    Unfortunatelly, the original Factory manual was not included when I bought the car
    I need your assistance as I am trying to download the E24 Factory Manual PDF (must have acct. to download) that has been posted upwards, and although Im logged in, the systems keeps telling me that I need a valid user name or password.
    Can anyone please help me downloading this PDF file?

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE and I am really glad that there are forums like this one in which we can discuss and help everyone!

    HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY 2013 for everyone!!!

    Kind regards,

    Santiago

    Thanks Jay for your reply!
    But I still cant download the E24 Factory Manual PDF (must have acct. to download)!!
    When I try to dowload it, being logged in, it redirects me to another page that requests my user Id and password and when I enter it, it sais that the info that I entered is incorrect...
    Is that link working?
    Has anyone uploaded that user manual in any other server where I can download it from?

    THANKS!!!!

    Santiago.

    Santiago: That manual link is to the BigCoupe.com and not bimmerforums.com. So you have to join BigCoupe first. Joe

    Agreed, I have a 1988 M6 and I would love to have that manual. Please, anyone who still has this file or thinks they have it, dig it up so I can host it to the community on my server!!!
