Uhh, Gary, you are dead wrong my man. Last year you bought a Bentley manual from me specifically for Rabbit diesel, which is what you wanted as I recall, and I threw in another one for free. Haynes, I think. I thought I was doing you a favor. Now they are "useless" manuals? "Wrong" manuals? Why did you ask to buy them from me? I did something to you "on purpose?" This is ridiculous. What have you been smoking out there?

I have posted to this list countless times during the past year, and you just now decide to slander my name.

Nice of you to show your "appreciation."


PS- And . . . don't make me have to get VWfrank after you. You will be sorry.
