Question E46 M3 Service/Repair Manual

For all you closet mechanics out there like me, do you know where I can find/buy a E46 M3 Service/Repair Manual?

I know that you can get digital versions from eBay, but does anyone know of any free ones. I have an oil leak and I want to fix it myself, don't know if it's the CPV or something else.

Thanks!

Even with BMW TIS online, and PDF files, etc... I still find it can't compare to the convenience and ease of use of having a Bentley manual lying in the engine bay of my car as I work on it. The Bentley has everything I need....except the entire Vanos! This forum is what I used to fix my Vanos, and it now runs flawlessly. But just about everything else is in there. I tried going for months without a Bentley and I eventually broke down and bought one. I got a Bentley for each one of my 3-series.

Check your oil sump gasket on the bottom of the oil pan if you don't see anything else. Gotta remove the front chassis reinforcement plate though.
