G'day Matt,
The Autobook (906) that Carlin mentions does cover the E9, but it's a pretty small book and not nearly so comprehensive as the Haynes. Trouble with the Haynes is that it specifically states that it only covers 4-door models (I have both books - I graduated from a 3.0S to the CS).

Of course, all the mechanical data applies (rear suspension apart) so that's some help. But for bodywork and electrical you're stuffed. Many years ago I bought the actual BMW workshop manual itself. This covered both sedans & coupes - It's easy to see where the Haynes pictures come from! The workshop manual has it's own part number - the guy I used to talk to at my local dealer here in Sydney said "We've got WS manuals - no binder - for $50" I said yes please! (This would have been back in '88). If I can find the part number I'll post it here sometime in the next week,
