Anyone bought these PDF repair manuals?

I was looking into buying one of these but I do not know if these are actually the same ones that the dealership uses like it states. Are these the same PDFs that are free if you search on the internet?

I don't know if they are the same ones, but I bought PDF workshop manuals on CD from a website which name currently eludes me. They were only about $20 including shipping. They are OK at best. Hard to navigate through them and many of the pages are actually scanned copies of actual pages. So the page was a bit hard to read. Nevertheless, search the web for a workshop manual site in the UK.

Found it...its www.workshopmanuals.co.uk. Just checked and Porsche is no longer listed on their site. Maybe they got sued?!?!?!

Hi,

With a car as complex as the Boxster, the Serive Manuals are maybe the most important tool you'll buy. It doesn't really pay to scrimp on it. I know a guy who sells them, along with OBDII Code and PET for under $80 on CD. PM me for info...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
