Welcome! Your first challenge is to post a picture of your vehicle ;)

For manuals, have a look in the tech archive, there are links to places to download lots of manuals, parts books and the Land Rover RAVE/EPC dealer parts catalogue system CD's.

I find the parts book / CD more useful than a service manual as it shows everything in an exploded diagram so you know what goes where, although on more modern stuff you sometimes need the instructions & data from the service book.

As for non-genuine books, they don't call them the Haynes Book Of Lies for nothing :unsure:

Having used both paper workshop manuals and RAVE, you'd be better getting RAVE. Finding things in the paper manuals is not straightforward and the search tool in Rave makes it easy to find things straight away. Or buy the manual and use both if you feel you need the printed book.
