    I buy most of my parts at O'Reilly's Close and reasonable. I noticed they had a new manual for my Mini, price $21.95, just wondering if anyone uses this manual and how good it was. Thanks

    It may be better than nothing but not by much. You really need to get a Bentley Manual. I put off getting one and now that I have it I wish I had got it sooner.

    The Bentley manual is worth every penny.

    How does the Bentley manual compare to the TIS CD?

    I have the TIS, and it's not the most user friendly thing in the whole world, but it has a lot of information.
