I bought one from eBay like $16. Proper PDF with about 3500 searchable pages. 625mb file.

That online reference just made me crazy trying to find things the full PDF is infinitely better. I also prefer the PDF to a hard copy because you can search and also print out just the pages you need for a job.

Yes, searching a PDF file is invaluable. Even when I have the printed service manual or owner's manual, I always try (not always with success) to get a searchable PDF.

I don't yet have a PDF for the E53 (do have the hard-bound Bentley), but I was able to find, by googling, one for the E46, which is pretty close.
