What model car do you have? The Alfa Romeo Owner's Club has an extensive library of service manuals, parts manuals, service bulletins, etc. For a very nominal feel they will make you a CD of all that info. Can't be beat! The best thing is to call or write them and tell them you want the "all in one" which includes all the pertinent information for that model.
The icing on the cake is that if you send them a photo of your car, they'll put that picture on the CD!
There are also Microfiche for these cars. Years ago I put together a CD that sold to a few folks with the microfiche data for the 86 Spider I had that was viewable with a browser, worked pretty well (you click on the various areas to drill down). I've had all the stuff scanned for the Milano for years but haven't gotten around to it yet! A few screen shots of what I did for the Spider.
Sorry, I don't have it in pdf format, there are a lot of pages and the way I have it (click to drill down) doesn't lend itself well to printing to pdf. I might be able to dig up one of the CD's I made if you are interested.

Does anyone know the rules around the smog law in CA if your car fails the smog test. I thought there was a ruling if it cost more that certain amount of $$ to repair the engine then you get a pass. I search the DMV and could not find anything on there website.
