They want your money, rather than make the information freely available, BMW will make you go to a local dealer who will quietly rip you off.
Playing on your ignorance.
BMW are the only Car manufacturer that I know of who do NOT have a technical service dept for customers, they do have one for DEALERS who get stuck though.
