... in the states there were a couple of service documents that were avail-
able, and many of us have copies of them.  Going from memory the titles were 
something like 'Introductory Service Training' and 'Maintenance and Adjust-
ments.'  They are by no means comprehensive, but I do find them highly 
useful.  There is a description of the hydraulically boosted brake/steering 
system, the AWD system, the ECU and others.  There is a brief theory of 
operation and some troubleshooting info as well.  Are these documents avail-
able in the UK?  If not, I'd be willing to provide a copy to you to dis-
tribute as you see fit ... let me know!
