Loads of info. About 2.5 inches thick, like a phone book.
The images and text are good, but not sufficient - you'll need to look up supplementary info on the web, or have a cheapo Hayne's manual alongside to be efficient with it. This book definitely gives you the correct factory info, saved my @$$ many times.

With that, it is still GOOD, a NECESSITY (perhaps a necessary evil?).

This book is a good manual for looking up general information about the models covered. However, I feel it covers too many years of production. The 1996-1999 models appear to have a lot more in common than do the 2000 and 2001 models. I use it while working on a 2000 model and often find it difficult finding information because I have to wade through those earlier years information. As for completeness of coverage, the publisher has a disclaimer that because they were limited by size constraints they had to summarize some details. Maybe if they covered fewer years the coverage could be more complete. What would be better is a DVD where one could zoom into all information about a single year and model to avoid confusion. I also wish that the size of bolts could be included instead of just torque data.

This is a must for anyone owning an Audi. For example. The dealership told me I needed to replace my coolant temp sensor. Okay... $100 for the part and another $100 to install it. So i took it in the butt and paid it. A year later they said it needed to be replaced and i needed to flush my coolant and add a newer more up to date coolant as well as some other minor things and there estimate was close to a grand. So I got this book and ordered the parts on line and did it all myself. Brought the car in for inspection later on and they asked where the work was done because it was great and were wondering why I did not use them. I smiled and said thanks. Not a word more. This book made it simple and combined with other info on the web and pictures it saved me a pile of money as dealerships are so expensive. Completely worth it.

No one does German automobile repair manuals as well as Bentley Publishing does. Their manuals aren't cheap but they are the most complete I've found short of the manufacturer's manuals. I got a used copy that did have some soiling but is perfectly usable and was considerably cheaper.

The Bentley A4 manual is a very complete manual. The over all ease of accessing different service info is helpful when trouble shooting most problems. The diagrams are very clear to include the electrical images. The code chart is a must to be able to read the codes concerning all manner of stored computer codes. This is a manual for someone who has knowledge of auto mechanics. There are no step-by-step directions as with some other do-it-yourself automobile manuals.

Although I am not a mechanic, from what I can tell this is a serious service manual. Very in depth, all fasteners, all steps are gone through, leaving nothing to chance, or guess. Light years more thorough than a Hayes Manual.

Highly recommend it you are doing any sort of maintenence on your own car.

purchased this as a birthday present to my son who owns a 1999 Audi A4. Have used the Bentley manuals for other cars and they are far superior to the run of the mill books available. The step by step instructions and illustrations encourages the driveway mechanics to delve deeper into car repair than they may otherwise have tried. Using the book to do one or two repairs will no doubt recoup the book cost in savings from having to pay a mechanic.

After reviewing the service manual on 08/09/2008, I have found that it is very difficult to get anything done from the manual. There are too many "see this section" inserts and one section will make you go another and then another, and you end up traversing the whole manual in confusion.
Example: I am trying to change my rear speakers, and in order for me to do this, I have to visualize from the menu from page 1 where it might be located, then after getting there, I have to visualize again where it says how to remove and replace them, because it does not say this. Now I find what I am looking for, and after reading it, I see I have to go from Section to Section, and the wording in one section is not the same in the other section where you were led to, for example in Section X 91-13 it says "remove parcel shelf, see Body-Interior section, Repair Group 70, but when you get there, you have to turn pages to find what you think it is, and it does not say "parcel shelf", but "rear shelf".
This book is very confusing, and very difficult for the not so mechanically inclined owners and the cost of the book is way too much for this kind of shabby publishing, and Bentley Publishers and Amazon should refund me 50% of the cost, because that is how much it is worth.
Thank You.
