I'm only guessing here, but as a software professional I would think that such an approach would be a violation of copyright, and therefore an illegal act that we cannot coordinate here on this forum.My dealer told me the manual for the redline costs about 150 bucks.
Maybe one of us can buy one and share with the others or all chip in :lol:
I'll give em a call and find out. And no I'm not balking at a 150 for a manual, was messing around.Pitcom, is your dealer able to supply a manual ? If he can I'll buy one from him. Mine has no knowledge of a service manual available for sale. I don't have a RL, but I am expecting only one manual for both models.
I have put off buying the Sol manual, in hopes that a Sky manual will show up, but I will probably give in soon. I hate not having a service manual for anything I own.
Are you really balking at spending $150 for the manual for your $ 30,000 car ? The OE manual for my '97 Bravada is 4 inches thick (2 books, thin paper). The repro manual for a '93 Blazer is 8 inches thick, on printer paper. Both came from Helm, each cost under $150. How would you even share a manual, if a group got together and bought it ? I assume you were thinking about copying it, but you are talking about 2000 pages, both sides. That's a lot of time at the copier.
:agree: :agree:I have used the CD manuals, and I have used the paper ones. From my experience, the paper book is better. Maybe I'm just old, but I find it easier to use, and I don't have to worry about getting my computer greasy. Besides, the books are $135, and the CD (when available) is $ 400.
Chilton's, Haynes, et al are, in my opinion, of little value, especially compared to the factory manual. It seems that whenever I tried to use one, I would get to a point where it would say something like "Further work requires tools or knowledge not available to you." and there I would be. So I do not buy them any more.
