    does any1 know where i can get a service manual for a 95 legend
    specifically the one that is used at the dealership

    i have seen many electronic manuals like that on ebay for integras but sadly none for the acura legend

    if any1 could point me in the right direction to find such i thing i would be very gratefull

    if not i will just have to settle for like a helms or somethings

    thanks

    not too cheap hehe especially cuz i gotta get the 94 and then the suplement

    do the original manuals really differ too much from the aftermarket ones?

    i just need it for basic repairs

    The supplement is probably not very important, just get the 94 manual. Helms will be the same, just a different cover and publisher. $70-$80 is the general price range of these service manuals. Go to an Acura dealership and ask a mechanic what he thinks and look at the 95 supplemental manual.

    For basic repairs, a Haynes is okay. But the Helms and factory service manuals are far better for the little details and their diagrams. You do get what you pay for in this case. So start with a Haynes... and work your way up. As you car is an Acura, you shouldn't have that much to work on. Christmas is coming, so maybe you can get someone in your life to give you a Helms in two months. Hehe.
