I bought it on cd but i wish i had the hard copy instead. Im modern age and i do everything on computer but this is one thing that i would just rather turn pages on. Its just personal preferance. Where did you see hard copy for 150 used? I bought mine right when they came out so not much selection and why i have cd.

I have the CD version and love the search feature of the PDF file. I print what I need when and if I need it. Would prefer wiring diagrams om paper. It does take some time to get use to. So far, I have not needed too much assistance from the factory manual.

Thanks for the info about the CD. Found a set of paper manuals on eBay for $85, couldn't turn it down. They looked a bit dirty, we'll see how they are when they get here.
