    I'm sure this has come up before but my searches have come up empty.
    I would like to find a decent repair manual for my 2009 Xcountry. i have been told that the OEM BMW manual is not that useful and is certainly not cheap.
    i did try downloading from an online vendor but didn't get any thing I could even open.
    any suggestions would certainly be appreciated. Overall there don't seem to be a whole lot of options out there.

    The BMW manual comes as an executable on a CD, and its contents doesn't seem particularly bad to me. You can print parts, but converting everything to PDF would be a hassle. That's annoying unless you plan on carrying a Windows laptop on larger trips.
