Editorial Reviews

Roundel Magazine
The author left nothing out. No secrets were held back and the book is both complete and accurate. . . The authors of other repair manuals would do well to folow the spirit in which this has been done. . . This is a must have for any repair shop or mechanic.
Star Magazine
The writing throughout is a model of clarity. . . We recommend this manual highly.

    A Must Have Book For All Mechanics

    I've been trying to fine tune my VW and Audi's for 2 years. All the mechanics I've been to had no idea what to do and did some work and charged an outrageous amount and nothing improved in return. I saw a few reviews for this book and decided to buy it. It is the second best car book i have (first being the Bentley Manual). It has great history and technical and troubleshooting info. I couldnt have done anything more without this book!! All do-it-yourself mechanics should have this as well as all foreign car mechanic garages.
