BMW Shop manual

Thought i would post this here. I was looking for a BMW shop manual for my 135i and came across this DVD version which seemed too good to be true.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-1...kparmsZ72Q3a55

But for $13 i had nothing to lose.

Well i got the DVD today and installed it. It turns out some one has made a hacked copy of BMW's actual dealership repair software. This thing is EXACTLY what i wanted.

Its complicated to use because its not made for the average consumer, but everything is in there if you look hard enough.

Screenshots.

Very nice find! So if I buy the 3 series DVD, it would come with the 1 series stuff correct? Are you sure this covers MY08 1 series coupes?

I'm really interested in this, since BMW won't sell it, and Bently won't print it. I'm done being a good boy about this.

I downloaded TIS a couple weeks ago. I can't remember exactly where I found it, but it works flawlessly. I'm actually running it under Parallels on my MacBook Pro. It's an older version, so it probably has a few things missing (particularly from the newer 1ers), but it does cover the E82 and E88 so the majority of stuff is there. It really makes me mad that we have to hunt this software down. If Bentley would get off their a$$ and produce a 1-series manual, I'd just buy that.

You have a year or version for the software so we can search for it?

I think these are the links. It's a 7-part RAR file. I used JDownloader to download all the files simultaneously.

http://rapidshare.com/files/209552439/BMWTIS.part01.rar
http://rapidshare.com/files/209564468/BMWTIS.part02.rar
http://rapidshare.com/files/209577285/BMWTIS.part03.rar
http://rapidshare.com/files/209790825/BMWTIS.part04.rar
http://rapidshare.com/files/209867346/BMWTIS.part05.rar
http://rapidshare.com/files/209877787/BMWTIS.part06.rar
http://rapidshare.com/files/209885405/BMWTIS.part07.rar

After you extract the files (start with the part 01 file, the others should be done automatically after you point your RAR program of choice to the folder where all seven parts are contained), you'll need to burn the expanded files to a DVD.

Once you've burned the DVD, navigate to the \WIN95\BMW\TIS. Run setup.exe and install Sysadm.

Run Sysadm and install the TIS software by selecting TIS- Install. This will start the install process. Note, this process took FOREVER on my computer, as in just about overnight. I was sure it was broken, but it installed fine and it works flawlessly.

Has anyone heard of or seen an updated manual that includes the N55 stuff? My guess is that BMW has taken this into the cloud and doesn't offer it to dealerships anymore but that's just a hunch.

^ this is not working for me, maybe someone can help? Will this install on Windows7? I burned expanded files to a dvd. When I run the setup executable it asks for language, but then it gives a windows popup saying windows doesn't think installed correctly... also, the Sysadm file is a .z file and winrar says it's a corrupted archive so whats going on here, what do I need to do? Thanks in advance!

Hmm, I'm running it in Windows 7 (32-bit) via Parallels on my MacBook Pro without a problem. It isn't exactly the fastest program I've used, but it's useable.
