Technical Library

This Library is laid out to follow the Bentley E28 5 Series manual. Why the 5 Series you ask? Well, the 6 Series is a 5 Series in wolf's clothing. The power train and suspension information in the 5 Series manual will, for the mostpart, work on the 6 Series. Besides, it's a logical organization. Within each section is information supplied by members of the bcg list. The information is intended to supplement the 6 Series repair manual and the Bentley 5 Series manual.

The "Listing By Topic" section provides a list of specific articles by title rather than by category. In this way, if you are not sure what category your question might be in, you can look at the Topics to see if there is an article covering the topic you are interested in.

In all cases for the following email addresses, replace the (at) with @. There is a listserver (e-mail system) for people specifically interested in conversing with other coupe enthusiasts. While it is E24 dominated, others are welcome. To subscribe to this listserver, send an email to the adminbcg(at) with the following as the first line of the BODY. "Subscribe bcg first_name last_name - city state". You will be subscribed in mail mode. If you wish individual e-mails, please send an e-mail to adminbcg(at) with the first word in the body of "HELP bcg". You will get a message back providing all admin commands and instructions. If you wish, you can still get personalized service by sending an email to the norm(at) Once you are a subscriber, you may post to the membership by sending an e-mail to bcg(at) Only subscribers are allowed to post to this listserver. If you are having problems either subscribing or getting mail, not sure how to post to the list etc., please check here.

Please check your question out here BEFORE you ask the bcg for help. If you have information to add to this technical library, please send it to Norm Grills, Webmeister and prefix the e-mail with "technical library:". I process 60-100 e-mails a day between work and home (where this is maintained) so, it will help to prioritize and process this volume. Thanks!
