F73/F78 Genuine Bound Service Manual on Ebay


Spotted a genuine paper bound service manual on Ebay this morning. £25 at the mo, but still 3 days to go and no, it's not me selling it.
Rare as rocking horse droppings these. Will be interesting to see what it goes for. Somebody's going to get a useful book!
Item number 160400741789

Price new was £150

I know, cos that's what I paid for mine.

It's interesting what deal you can do when there's a recession on and people aren't buying cars just before the end of the financial year.

All I said to the sales fella is that if he won't sell me a workshop manual, I'll buy my vehicle from a dealer who will.

.... and, just to be sure, I wrote in the new vehicle purchase contract in the 'special conditions' box failure to fulfil any part of this contract shall render the whole contract null and void and got the sales guy to countersign this.

I still haven't forgotten the smarmy creep who sold me my new Scirocco (in the days I was a young buck) who said that he would let me have the microfiche manual for said vehicle, but failed to deliver !

PS. It was a while ago .... the Scirocco cost £6000 new !

Sold for !!!!!!

Seems to have sold for £63, thought it would go for lots more.
