What's the best manual to have on hand for an S4 Spider? I've been driving and repairing Spider's for ~30 years, so I just need a reference manual for the "new" stuff, i.e. the Motronic and other electronic stuff, and probably the A/C, too. TIA.

this one;



plus I've got some PDF files of the wiring schematics.

Also the Alfa 75 Twinspark had the same motronic system, so I have used the Alfa 75 manual when refering to that (I have these in scanned jpegs).

let me have you e-mail & I'll squirt these across to you.

Other than purchasing a printed manual, CarDisc is about as good as it gets. The CarDisc definitely is not perfect, there are many poorly scanned pages and the interface is pretty bad.

and you night also want "Bosch Fuel Injection and Engine Management" by Charles Probst:

Not terrible but just marginally useful. Good as a primer on fuel injection, hardly any coverage of Motronic but the L-Jet info is good.


I've also heard good things about "How To Tune & Modify Bosch Fuel Injection":

Complete waste of money. There is nothing of value in this book.

All true, I'm sure. I've got the Cardisc for the S1 Spider's, and it's not much more than poorly-scanned parts diagrams, but still OK to have. I'm familiar with the basics of Motronics, as my wife's got a Volvo with a version, and I've owned 3 BMW's with it, too. But, I've never had to service the system, and would like a troubleshooting guide, and a set of schematics, if the need arises. I just ordered the CD direct from cardisc.com, as I'm not allowed to order from IAP anymore ;) (nor would I want to).
