    Which workshop manual? Gregorys or Haynes?

    So which company brings out the best/easist/informative manual for my 99 pulsar? Gregorys, about $50 at supercheap, or Haynes for about $65? Thanks.

    Oh, sorry. The 1.6l Ga16de I think it's called? I've found both manuals that cover it, but is one brand better than the other?

    Thanks Mudcake. As the Gregorys is cheaper, I'll start saving for that one. Thanks for the replies and help.

    Wow. Didn't know that. Did one buy out the other at one stage or something? Or always been the one company and I never knew?

    If you Google n15 service manual etc, there are or at least there were a few of Nissan's own manual floating around.

    Paper manuals are handy, but the genuine (electronic) manual includes more detail i'd almost be sure.

    I did manage to find an electronic version, but think it was for an American Almera or something. And I found it harder to use. The Haynes book should be good enough for me.

    I've done some googling as there does seem to be some interest in it...

    I've found the manual I have, its the UK almera manual, but has the 1.4,1.5,1.6 GA engines, the SR and the CD engines. I've yet to have an issue with it on my N15 Rezzo 1.5.

    Can I post a link here?
