I know of 3 different repair manuels(Haynes,Chilton & Bentley). I plan to purchase one of these manuels but which one I dont know. Which is the best one for weekend mechanics? What do you guys recommend? Why?

Why?<p></i><br>Hi<br>The R.Benley goes to great detail, step by step.<br>The Chilton is the only one which covers M5.<br>The Haynes have a bit more on basic knowledge.<br>If you want data for M5, Chilton +/- Benley.<br>If you want greatest detail, RB.<br>If you want minimun expenditure, Chilton only.<br>

<br>I purchased Bentley from B&N.com. It was ~$60US to my door. Chilton was too light on content. Haynes would probably be ok for a weekend mechanic and is less expensive than the Bentley.<p>Good luck,<p>EM<p>: I know of 3 different repair manuels(Haynes,Chilton & Bentley).

The Chilton is worthless. It covers too many models and is too "light." The Bentley is awesome and worth the extra $$$. I have the original service manuals on fische and the Bentley is very similiar to those.<p><i>: I know of 3 different repair manuels(Haynes,Chilton & Bentley).
