: Bently is not a know all, explain all, end of all manuals manual. In fact the Bently E34 manual is not as good as the Bently e28 manual. I own the Bently, Chilton, and Haynes manuals. None of them explain all, show all, etc. Sometimes you may need to look at all three to find the correct picture or explaination of the procedure you are attempting. The Bently manual is "typically" better mechanically, with the Haynes being a more general, cover more models type manual. The Haynes turns out to be a pretty good owners manual (to replave that whimpy document that came with the car.
Also good for shopping for a used Bimmer.
You can never have enough documentation.
