[V8] V8 Manual

 OK gang, I've been kicking this around for a awhile. When I was a newbie V8
owner, one of you frequent posters were kind enough to offer up a paper copy
of the factory manual and the family album on CD.   I have kept the manual
in binders, making copies of the pages I was using so not to destroy and get
all grease covered.   
I will be willing to contact a local printer and get a quotation on making
additional copies.  I paid $100 for the copy I purchased 3 years ago, I
believe that was cost for only one or two copies made at that time,  it is
double sided, color dividers, 3 hole punch, fills two 3 inch binders, etc.

Many of you have contributed priceless information that has allowed me to
own and maintain this great car with out going broke, so I will be willing
to do this for the list.  Please respond to me off line if you are
interested.  I will wait a couple weeks to see how many potential copies we
need, as I'm sure this will reduce cost per copy.

PS: anyone every find an Audi factory floor mat that fits in the front of
this car??

There's rumored to be a CD copy or the original paper manual (which is
expensive and unobtanium) floating around out there - I paid an un-named
source about $5.00 for a copy. Not as convenient as the paper manual, but
FAR less expensive and easier to come by.

Ask around - you will find yourself pleasantly surprised.

Also see if you can find a copy of the "family album", another rumored
source of invaluable information - you don't even need the latest edition
since your car (like mine) is a 1990.

And welcome to V8 ownership - when it is running right (which, surprisingly
enough, it seems to do fairly often), you'll forgive it ALL its sins - after
a couple of weeks of driving the V8, take a ride in the Acura again - it
will frighten you.
