Re[2]: Alldata

     There is alot of info on this CD including wiring diagrams, component 
     locations and detailed repair procedures.  For instance:  if there is 
     a TSB related to a relay, their location diagrams show where ALL the 
     relays are.  The repair procedures are good, but they assume you have 
     a base mechanical knowledge.  The CD also has maintenance schedules.  
     One downfall is that it does not support clipboard functions so if you 
     want to cut/paste info, it is not possible unless you use some sort of 
     screen capture utility or you can use a prn2file utility because it 
     does support printing.
     I think you pretty much get what the shops get but limited to one 
     vehicle.  This CD is TSBs only.  The manual is another 24.95 I 
     If you are considering buying this, you should check out their web 
     site to see some sample info.   http//www.aldata.com

Can you describe the contents of tyour CD?  I suspect the shops get 
the full manuals and drawings for the increased $$$$.....
