Question Asked: 

I have a 325i wagon with very low miles that has extensive repairs and needs just about everything else original replaced. I have a garage, and a spare vehicle to drive. Would it be a good idea to buy the Bentley repair manual and begin to familiarize myself with repairs? I need a new thermostat, brakes, I think I have a vacuum leak. In under 2 years I've replaced the brakes, steering rack, belts, and 1 window regulator. I realize I can't repair major components but If I could save some money on the minor things doing it myself the major repairs wouldnt hurt so much. The Bentley repair manual isn't cheap, does it explain the steps so a newbie could follow along or repair things at home?
