335xi Manual Difference?

Just bought a 2007 335xi and was wondering if it had the right manual with it. It says it covers the 328i, 328xi, and 335i. It has a lot of information about the i-drive, which my car doesn't have. Is there a different manual for the 335xi, or do I have the right one?

Anyone? I asked the local dealer and they didn't know if BMW updated the manual for the 335xi or not. Is there a different way to tell, part number, anything?

There is a idrive and non idrive version of the e90 manual, if you have non idrive and there is anything in the manual about idrive, you have the wrong manual.

Okay, thanks. I think I've figured out that the manual I have is for the E92/93 with iDrive. Time to get one ordered.

I had the same problem! Never got the right manual though -- I just assumed that they didn't include the 335xi in that first year's manual. I went to bmwusa.com and said I had an 07 335xi, and it provided me with a PDF of the exact same "328i, 328xi, 335i" iDrive manual that you and I have... so I assumed the correct one didn't exist!

Let me know if you get your hands on the right one - I'll pester my dealer for a replacement in that case...

I was able to round up two of them. If you want to pm me I can send you the extra one. I think it came from the wrecking yard though, because it's been exposed to cigarette smoke for sure. If you don't mind that you can have it.
