I havent done it, but would assume you could pay your one day membership ($30) and download all the BMW TIS you want. Legally also.

www.bmwtis.com

I am a little screwed since I have a 323i (Canadian market only) and the website is USA only

Has anybody signed up for the TIS membership and downloaded the manual? Just wanted to verify anybody can pay the fee and use it. And make sure it has all the latest manuals for our cars.
I'd be very willing to pay the $30 subscription if it meant having a complete manual for my car.

I have. The $30 gets you 24 hours of access to to TIS. The TIS is for every model BMW and it is not set up as a typical aftermarket service manual. You have to plan what areas of service you want to get the procedure for and down load by either printing the pages or printing to a file using your MS image writer printer driver, or copying into Word.

The biggest issue is many procedures have sub-procedures that are hyper-linked into the main procedure you've pulled up. When down loading you have to down load all the sub-procedures as well. I copied a lot of mine into Word and then copied the sub-procedures and added them to the main procedure in the right location (in the procedure). If you have the time (on a rainy day) it's well worth the effort. Also, I'd expect the TIS will have repair procedures for parts of the car the aftermarket manuals will not (once they are published), and it lists special tools. However, if you want the basic stuff I'd just wait for the Bently manual to come out.

I've attached a sample of a procedure I made from the TIS.

Thanks for posting feedback. Does it not allow you to directly download the pdf files? I guess I could print to PDF.

No. You have to use the document image writer print driver in Microsoft.

Paid for the access to TIS this past weekend and got a bunch of info. They definitely make you work for it. Maybe eventually we can legitimately buy a full manual like most other cars.
FYI, I installed a PDF print driver and was able to print the web pages right to PDF. I have Adobe reader but used the free bulldog PDF printer to save the pages.

Bentley service manual is cheaper at Amazon.com
http://www.amazon.com/BMW-E90-E91-Se.../dp/0837616085

Beats paying the MSRP of $130.
