LF; Service Repair Manual

I'm looking to get a service repair manual, however, Bentley Publishers and Haynes do not have a 1991 318i listed on their website. Both stop at 1990 and begin again at 1992. Any ideas here as to what I could use?

it is virtually the same...minor differences between 90-91 cars.

So I am okay to go with it then!?!?! I have always used Haynes in the past. Is the Bentley manual better for the BMW or are they pretty much the same?

You have to buy the E30 manual for the chassis and electrical, and then buy the E36 manual (which has the M42 in it)for the engine. I've been using two manuals for years now... it's a PITA sometimes.
