haha seems like BMW dont like Mac users man!
BMW locks Mac users out of information site; contact info here

!! I will be puttin it up on a server stay tuned for the link!!!!

oh wait! I need your email addresses!!

13 individual folders compressed!!






"Just try this URL and see what you get: www.bmwtechinfo.com. This is a Web site designed to allow independent auto technicians and BMW customers access to technical information for cars they work on or own, but someone has designed it to be Windows-only," writes Senior Editor John H. Farr over at Applelinks.

"I am livid. We don't drive Yugos. And we don't do Windows. We are Mac users. And Mac users are more likely than the average schmo to be able to recognize quality products. To have BMW even consider locking out Mac users has to be a serious mistake, somebody really dropped the ball, if there ever was a ball at all. Give out the email links!" says SteveJack, our own opinion columnist when woken out of a sound sleep to hear about this idiocy.

Here is the site, try it on a Mac: www.bmwtechinfo.com

If your stuck on Windows at work, this is what Mac users see:
http://www.bmwtechinfo.com/tiscode/h...rno=0&winos=no

It reads, "We're sorry, but the BMW TIS website was designed for Internet Explorer 5.0+ and Netscape?6.0+ Web-Browsers running on the Microsoft Windows operating system. Your computer must be using the Microsoft Windows operating system to view this site."

Here is the contact (dialogue) page for BMW International:
www.bmw.com/bmwe/intro/dialogue/index.html

You know what to do.
