    Its not borderline I'm afraid, it is plain illegal, and even worse to be selling it, or appearing to sell it

    Im just wondering regarding the copyright of Bentley publishers.

    They don't sell the book anymore, They don't have plans of publishing it in E-book format.

    How "borderline illegal" is it to distribute this in an ebook format?

    Should I ask them from an anonomyous mail regarding scanning the book and publish as a ebook?
    Not that its traceable to me (except from these posts) anyway.. But would maybe nice to ask them?

    We are a huge community that can benefit from this book. Im amazed how detailed everything is in this book.
    Guides on everything , Torque on every single screw and guide how to fit this and in what order. Its quite amazing.

    I paid quite the amount for the book, been looking for 9 months for a okay copy. Been searching through every site I could find and
    found a good example on a site with pictures of it. So bought it


    I've already ask some scanners in Norway that does other kind of papers but they work by the hour which I said wasnt viable for me.
    They had no problem scanning it , if its for personal use it doesnt matter. But they wanted 80 eur+- an hour for it and the guy said "probably 15 hours".
    Which is something im not gonna pay for it. I've seen scanners you can buy for 400-500 eur which takes a certain amount of pages , and 15 hours is way overkill for this project..

    Suggestions anyone?

    To help you putting in the time to do it , i can pay for a PDF copy. I think you will need to spend some time to do that. Great if more people will do the same , cash in a bit , would be great

    Was thinking of doing it myself with a cam and a setup. Was wondeirng about buying one with 14-day return free of charge also
    Found some but cost alot as well and as I really dont need it for later im wondering if I should buy one or not.

    I bought the book really just for getting it digitalized since it was in such mint condition.

    That's very thoughtful, just be careful of the copyright police don't intervening with a word of caution. The high page count and the relatively thin paper used could add to the complication of scanning.
    Maybe DIY is the way to keep costs down? There's lot of OCR software available to choose from.

    Your Bentley manual looks as good as new if you discount the dog ear on the bottom corner.

    Si finally found the book, been looking for it for ages. Price was.. well, I dont want to share what it cost me with tax, shipping etc

    Car loaded up for delievery for exhaust build, four wheel alignment, light adjustment and some checkup.

    If everything works well im going to the "MOT" to get the coilovers,wheels,exhaust and some other stuff to get it road legal.
    then "MOT / Tüv and probably its back on the road.

    A lot of tiny stuff needs to be sorted out. And some big ones.

    Going for a new radiator later on, paint job, original s2 bumper (brand new) , side "fenders" front,.

    I really want to take the engine out, clean up the engine bay, repaint everything, change every tiny bits and pieces etc.

    all for now

    Been having some fun after previous owner which has bypassed the rad fan with his own switch. great..
    Just pulled everything out to check everything before fitting it again, refilling coolant, seems sorted out now. At least rad fan goes on both speeds, half / full speed for now.
