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.
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?
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!
