Can anyone tell me whether a shop manual covering the 2004 TT is available either in hardcopy or on CD-ROM for the Mac? Thank you.

There is now.
http://www.bentleypublishers.com/product.htm?code=AT06

The TT paper service manual just arrived in our warehouse yesterday. This manual has numerous in-house photos and procedure verification by Bentley technical editors. We made every effort to include the information that you really need, clearly and accurately explained.

Here are few highlights that stand out for me:

-32-page Product Familiarization section, printed in color, and highlighting much of the info from original factory training booklets.
-Massive, 92-page Maintenance section based on real world/hands-on repair experience. Including proper positioning of floor jack and jack stands, because not everyone has a lift at their disposal.
-6 pages of detailed instructions for replacing the timing belt on the 1.8L engine. Plus real world expectations on when this should be done.
-Specific information for 1.8L 180hp, 225hp and 3.2L 250hp engines.
-Numerous pages, photographs and exploded views of coupe and roadster componenents, trim panels, etc. (We had a roadster subject vehicle for this project).
-The correct procedures for front exterior bulb replacement, not the wrong info as supplied by the factory.
-New 28-page section for fuses, relays and electrical component locations. Includes 55 illustrations/photos showing where many components are actually located.
-All the available factory wiring diagrams with easy to use index of diagrams and components.
-30-page OBD (On Board Diagnostics) section with P-codes and VAG codes listed and indentified. Also includes list of aftermarket scan tool/special tool suppliers.
-6-page user friendly index in the back of the book.

It kinda makes me want to go out and get a TT of my own...

Order it now, just in time for the Holidays.

Stefan,

Yes the new TT paper service manual is similar to the CD. Our ATT6 CD uses only factory service information, provided by Audi of America. There is actually a lot more information on the CD than in the paper manual.

When we make the paper service manual we utilize the factory service information (CD) as a starting point. From there we select the things that enthusiasts and shops are most likely to need. We also add a lot of insights that we have gained from actually working on numerous VWs and Audis, as well as procedure verification and documentation (photos) of an actual subject vehicle.

I like to think of our paper service manuals and CD-ROMs as being good compliments to each other. There are positives and negatives with each product, but both will do a great job of helping you service and repair your vehicle.

If you already have the CD, I don't think you will be disappointed by also having the paper service manual.

Here are a few things that I personally like about our paper manuals:
-Use it anywhere, including the garage, side of the road, friend's garage, etc.
-Leave it on the front seat of the car in case you get stuck having to get the car serviced somewhere besides a dealership. The techs might actually take a look at the manual and do things "by the book". It sure beats paying them to "learn" by working on your car.
-Browse through it and learn yourself. I've never found electronic products or computer screens to be very easy to spend a lot of time just reading.
-The paper manual is designed to be used by people like you and me: car enthusiasts who don't have a lot of specialized factory training and dealership experience.

Hope this helps,

Im a little miffed at you guys at Bentley.
The price here at Bentley is a lot more than I can get it at Amazon. Not a great way to show loyalty to your existing customers!

Hi Stan, i agree, i am glad that "oldsetter"has point this out. I wanted to buy this manual at Bentley Publishers, but now i have bought it for 72 dollar including shipments cost to Europe via Amazon.

This manual has one other advantage compare to the CD-ROM. I do not have to register it every time again when i want to install it on a new computer. Whenever i upgrade my hardware or OS i need to get a new key!

With kind regards,

Stefan

We have no control over the price that various resellers set for our products. We establish a retail price which comes with our no hassle 6-week money back guarantee if you buy directly from us. We also ship the product quickly from our warehouse in the middle of the country.

If you would rather purchase the book from Amazon, that's fine with us. It still means we are selling the book, it's just sold based on volume pricing.

That's just the nature of free market economy.

You missed the point!
Most, if not all, here are current and continuing customers.
If you want to sell through retailers, no, discounters, than you are correct that is the nature of a free market.
However your existing patrons, and you have ALL our email addresses, should be shown some appreciation.
A special price, free shipping an incentive, etc.
Im confidant Amazon is making a profit which means you are selling to them a a SUBSTANTIAL discount.
Your business, your call, BUT you may be assured I wll look elsewhere for my future needs if only because of your company's attitude that I am a sheep to shorn at your pleasure, which is how I now feel.

Oldsetter,

You make a good point. But it doesn't make a difference to some suppliers. An option may be to try and buy used books and you cut both out of a profit?

Oldsetter, I figured I'd jump in here for a bit and hopefully answer your questions. Since we're the manufacturer, we maintain the list price for our books. However, someone like Amazon or another retailer often will run a sale, like Amazon is doing now. I'm always happy to tell someone that if you see the book somewhere else for cheaper, by all means pick it up there. (Especially since Amazon will offer free US shipping on orders of this size.) We certainly wouldn't be able to, nor would we be inclined to, compete with Amazon on our own books.

We've talked about having some sort of member incentives at some point in the future. If and when we do anything like that, we'll post news about it here. Of course, make sure the email address in your profile is up-to-date, so we can get in touch with you if we run any special sales or offers.

Thanks for your support!

-Maurice

I'm a little confused at your statement "We certainly wouldn't be able to, nor would we be inclined to, compete with Amazon on our own books." You are the publisher You are making money on selling books to amazon so why cant you be able to compete with them i just do not understand you logic

Maurice,
Im stunned!
Surely you are not saying that you are losing money on the books you sell to Amazon!
I further doubt that they are either since it is such a small niche market for them.
Please undrstand that Im not complaing about your price only that it is SOOOOO much more than Amazon and again I remind you that the great majority of those here are current and past customers of your fine products.
When we activate your products like the cd/dvds we provide you with our email and etc to activate.
This is the select group not just those who post here, but actual customers who fork over our money on a routine basis.
It is the vast difference in price and the seeming lack of appreciation for a loyal customer base I originaly and currently am upset about and which prompted my first post.

There you have it guys. It's cheaper to buy from Amazon with their free shipping, specials, etc. the message I get is to buy products elsewhere whenever you can.
