  • e30 M3 Workshop Manual

    Does anyone know of a good workshop manual for the e30 M3? I love things in hard copy!

    If not is there other books that are worth looking at? (M3 related)

    I think most people use:
    Bentley
    link
    Or
    Koala Motorsports
    link

    "Unlike the latter day E36 and E46 M3's, the
    original E30 M3ís main purpose in life was to
    win races on the track, not the street. It
    got the job done."

      cool thanks - does the koala motorsports manual cover the getrag gearbox or just the US std gearbox?

        it doesnt cover either apart from the linkage R&R.

        This is what you ever wanted to know about E30 (and were afraid to ask...):

          An indispensable tool for the owner or technician working on any US model of the E30 M3 from 1987 - 1991 production.
          Seems like it probably does not. I don't have the cd yet (planning on getting it pretty soon) so I can't say for sure. Maybe someone else can chime in.

            Always wondered........... is it illegal to take an original of the BMW OEM repair manual, copy and distribute ?????

            I've always wanted a hard copy as well.

              Bentley doesn't cover M3...just E30s.

                It'll be cheaper than getting real thing, but it'll still cost money to make the copies for a hard copy. Doubt you can distribute to make money.

                  I realized that, but I always see people referring to Bentley. I assume it might be ok for general e30 related issues?

                    Yeah the bentley is fine for everything but the S14.

                    Koala covers the rest.

                      I have a Getrag 265 repair manual, but it's in German. Send me a PM if you want a copy.
