    You should be able to upload it as an attachment.
    I've collected quite a few of those training manuals over the years for various engines and components.

    Thanks for this PDF mate - Quite interesting to see what BMW did different...

    But a few things i've noticed so far...
    1. For the M52TUB28, it says "The aluminium crankcase is 51lbs lighter than the cast iron block of the M52".... But I thought the M52 was aluminium, and the M50 was cast iron
    2. This keeps making reference to the "M52 in the Z3 Roadster"... I wasn't aware there was any difference from the M52 in the Z3 to the E36
    3. I'm reading a graph for the power differences between the M54B25 vs M52B25, and its showing the M52 2.5l as having 168hp and the M54 2.5l as having 192hp

    This is an American document mate. Example, the M52 is aluminium in Europe, cast iron for the US market

    i think thats a miprint, the m50 was cast iron! not m52! the m52 was the same in the z3 apart from cast iron liners, thats how i have read it. and yes the m52tu is a 168, remember this is the 323 version!

    Of course , M52B25 is the 323 - The M50B25 is the 325
    I was just reading it wrong
