Smile Cheap Digital Shop Manual

I know there has been a great deal of interest in members obtaining a shop manual for servicing their vehicles that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Today I came across a digital, CD based version of the 2011 CRZ shop manual on RockAuto for $19.79 and promptly ordered myself a copy. You may also order the bound version for just shy of $110 if you so choose.

When I get it in the mail i'll be sure to let you guys know if this is the actual shop manual as a scanned PDF (Which is what Bishko typically does) and it's quality. Here's to hoping!!!

Still have one similar to that for the Honda Fit. Was definitely awesome but had to be run on windows using internet explorer. Really easy to navigate and find what you need otherwise.

curious to see if this is similar.

Alright guys, finally got it in the mail today and it's the real deal. It's a CD in a simple jewel case. The CD contains one large (393Mb) PDF file. Inside the PDF it's split into volumes 1 and 2. It is a high quality scanned copy of the actual service manual for both the 2011 and 2012 CR-Z's. The PDF is "protected" but I was able to copy/paste it onto my computer so I don't have to keep the CD with me whenever I want to reference it. Text is also searchable so you can do a quick CTRL+F to find what you need. Any other questions let me know!!

I definitely recommend this for anyone who might be remotely interested in modifying or servicing their own CR-Z.
