Bentley Manual

Is there anywhere online to purchase and download a .pdf of the Bentley manual for a 986? Or does anyone know where I can find a local copy in the St. Louis area?

Thanks!

Bentley manuals do not exist in an electronic format, only as a book. Amazon (amongst others) carry them in hard copy.

Not true... I have the Bentley BMW E34 manual in PDF on my laptop. Although I have not found the 986 service/repair manuals from Bentley in PDF yet, I do have the factory Technical/Service manual in PDF form.

My hard copy just showed up today. Perfect timing... I'm done with the hard stuff and about ready to put the car back together!

As we are being pedantic, the manual he wants has never been available in that form.
