Is there an F10 M5 repair manual for owners?

After searching I've found no reference to a consumer available repair manual for the F10 M5. BMW makes available a repair manual on CD for their motorcycles, but when I called my dealer about an automobile version he found nothing. Does anyone know where even basics about torque values might be found if I wanted to get into the suspension? I wonder if BMW has gone the same route as Mercedes and has a paid subscription service online where they charge for access to repair info? Thanks for any help/advice.

Service Manual available for 2010 M5 ?

Hi all I just bought a "like New" 2010 M5 with 9800 miles on it! Wow what a car! I haven't yet got the lien release from the seller so I've only driven it home but it sure is nice. I don't think the owner even put it in 'M" drive with the 500 ponies checked.

I'll be here a lot I'm sure. This is my first sports car but I've ridden sport bikes all my life. Right now I have a Ducati 998 and a Aprilla RSV, mille R. I'm in my early 50's.

Is the 5 series manual put out by Bentley have any worth? I have had no luck finding a M5 manual. I guess nobody makes one.
Thanks for any advice,
Erik

I just bought the Bentley 5 series manual that goes to 2010. It will help on a lot of parts but not on engine rebuild which would interest me.
I'm getting the feeling that owners of M5 don't do serious work on them. I hope too, if needed. I willing the lean and make mistakes. I just hope the mistakes don't cost to much!
