Any idea when a printed Service Manual for the Tiguan will be released? I know there is a DVD option, however, I prefer a printed version. Thanks!

Sansho-
That's a tough call - it's hard to plan books for newer platform vehicles, you never know what's going to change - right after you finished the book. I'd keep an eye on our website, but I really wouldn't expect anything this year.

Buy the DVD and make your own printed manual. It will take awhile, but I doubt Bentley will do a paper manual for a relatively low volume model such as the Tiguan.

Not sure what all is on the DVD... you can save $20 by
paying for the electronic license & then download the
manual in the Bentley Member Center (only 226MB).

I like the eBahn Software, but yes, there's times when I
prefer and pull out the old paper manuals.

Another option, if you want paper, go to www.erwin.vw.com and
pay for a 1 Day Subscription ($35).

Download and print as much as you want within that 24hrs
(any/all vehicles).

Be warned... some manuals (when printed) have missing text
or text that is cut-off at the right side of the page. See
attached images of some stuff I had printed.

For speed of printing, I went to a Print/Copy place with
internet access... download the file, open & print.

This whole route can also get quite expensive, more so than
the Bentley eBahn/DVD product (best bang for the buck).

The "printing issue" with Erwin is "supposedly" being looked
into, but after 4 month I have yet to hear of a solution.

Our preference over the years when ordering a new VW, Audi or Porsche is to negotiate everything on our want list from the beginning (i.e. vehicle, options, additional winter wheels and Bentley Service Manual, etc.) then write them a check and be done with the whole process so that we can enjoy the experience.

A service manual make a "great read" for the mechanically inclined, engineers or general public so that intelligent questions can be asked of the service personal.

To only provide a "full price" service manual on DVD or slightly discounted download is the worst public relations nightmare for the most trusted brand of publications! I could explain it away by the popular marketing smoke screen of "going green" but it's just a profit grab plain and simple!

To only support Windoze and not Mac OS X is salt in the wound!

Additionally, who wants to get there computing equipment dirty?

Suggestions:
1. Greatly reduce the price to better reflect why it's on a DVD.
2. Greatly reduce the price for the download version.
3. Offer a printed manual for the current retail price.
4. Offer free updates via download for all DVD or download version! This might justify the price gouging and inconvenience!
