Default Bought my dream M3 🏎💨💨

Hey everyone super excited I was finally able to purchase my 99M3 vert with hard top and Vaderís in hell rot red l,manual last Sunday. I remember first seeing one in 1996 and knowing I would have one and finally it happened.
I have a few question itís my first time in the threads so donít hurt me.

Is there a diagram for the vacuum lines? (Ive searched and havenít found one specifically for the 99m3)

My dash lights do not illuminate neither does center console. The indicator and warning lights work just no light to see it at night. Any idea?

Thank you all so much and I look forward to advice from you all.

Check the drivers shock tower area. I recall a vacuum diagram somewhere under the hood.

Congrats on the pickup. Post up pics.
As for the lights, start with the low hanging fruit. Make sure your interior lights aren't turned all the way down with the dimmer lol. I've actually had that happen to me.
Next, check the fuses. The fuse diagram should be underneath the lid to the fuse box. Headlights and everything work I assume? So it wouldn't be the switch likely.

Welcome, here's the shop manual:

 
Bentley_BMW_3-Series_Service_Manual_%28e36%29.pdf
 

Good source for part numbers and diagrams:

www.realoem.com

Post some pictures

edit: if that DL link doesn't work, google "E36 Bentley Manual PDF" and you'll find a few other links.
