Default Bentley Manual for Subies?

My search yielded nothing since 2000. Since then, is there anything like a Bentley manual for Subies? like this http://www.bentleypublishers.com/

no need for Bentley/Haynes manuals because the Subaru Factory Service Manual is available.

http://techinfo.subaru.com/index.html

Long ago, I purchased the 3 day subscription and downloaded every pdf for my 04. I think there's a limit to the amount you can download now though. Not sure. You can find them 'out there' on the internet, either posted or for sale but be aware that it can be a touchy subject on here due to copyright issues.

*search for FSM

What he's trying to tell you is that the complete service manuals from Subaru are online if you look around a bit.

The best way to get them (legally...) is the Subaru techinfo site (techinfo.subaru.com) - you can pay for a 3 day subscription for $35 and download whatever you need. Thing is, unless you have a 2012, the manuals are literally in 700-800 small files, which makes downloading them a bit of a pain (you can only download 50 files per hour) - the 2012 manuals are only in 100-150 parts, so downloading them is easy. (that's what I did for my car)

sheeesh, i appreciate that there are free things on the web to download....and that free is good. but the op is about getting something like a bentley manual. having worked on and maintained my bmw and mini, i've found the bentley invaluble. need to reset service light, put in bigger injectors, wiring schematics, interior/exterior info....all there whenever you want it. i am willing to pay for that kind of convience. such a comprehensive thing may not exist for subaru? if not i'll take your advice. thanks.

You can get the same FSM in a printed/bound form as well. The problem is, there's a book for engine, a book for transmission, a book for chassis, a book for wiring, etc. You'll have a stack of books a foot tall. (and it will cost hundreds of dollars)

The books in pdf format are much more convenient and you can just print the sections you need when you need them. (and get them all greasy, wipe your hands with them, and throw them away)
