I was able to enter my VIN and download the Owner's Manual and Navigation+Entertainment+Communication Manual (iDrive 8.5).

Looks like I have some reading ahead of me as I wait for my car to cross the pond.

That is an owner Manual, what about the repair manual for the BMW i5 G60 2024 manual? Do you have it or need to buy it from someone? Only one website is selling it so far and it is way too expensive, but I am not sure if it's worth it.

What is your opinion on this one?

Looks like an absolute scam to me and I think a person would have to be completely insane to enter any kind of payment information into a website like that. What is your opinion on my opinion johnsheller2?

Well I bought a 2023 repair manual from them, it was fine and the payment process was easy. But I received the repair manual after 36 hours almost. After Payment they sent me an email, in which they mentioned that i will get any 2023 Manual within 48 hour as they have to complile or something. I was worried but when i received an email having 4 GB of manual it was a relief.
Now I am not sure about BMW 2024 manuals as the new vehicles are just being launched.
God Knows! If I dont get the manual from someone else then i will take the risk again.

Why would you want a repair manual for a brand new car that is under warranty?

I just want it for day-to-day care. I leave mechanical work to the professionals.

Why would you be even thinking of buying this when you should have at least a three year warranty on the car with an option to extend.

OK, I understand your way of thinking. BUT how many times have I read here and on other forums that if BMW even get wind that anyone but them have 'fixed' one of their cars while under warranty, they wont go near it and your warranty has been voided. Just saying.
