    There is nothing wrong with Haynes manuals for DIY jobs. You can ask at a dealers for a genuine VW manual but I don't think they sell one. Even if they did they wouldn't be £22 Haynes price.

    You could Google for ElsaWin which is very good for VAG models.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Sorry a bit late with this post as I've just joined but felt I had to give my 2cts worth.
    ... bought the haynes manual for mine (22 quid) and it is certainly very useful, indepensible I would say, especially if you have a little knowledge but are no expert. But their cross-references are often really bad and some things are just not there. So I also invested in the pdfs from erwin (which I could have easily downloaded in the minimum time bookable - 1 hour - ~8 quid, including wiring diagram). I find with these two, a few forums, youtube, and a VCDS (although imho ross-tech can be a bit snotty about responding to 'amatuer' questions on their forums) is a extremely good basis and allows me to do much more, more confidently and saves a lot of time. Well worth the investments.
