Alright, tell the truth...how many of you have actually read the F&$#* Manual cover to cover?

Did you rush home the day you bought you car, pull up a chair, maybe get a cold drink, and settle in for a eve of Manual?

I downloaded the PDF file and printed it off at work one day. Read it over the course of a few weeks prior to delivery...

I have a copy of my owner's manual in my bathroom so I can "refresh" my knowledge of my car whenever I need to do "business". :lmao:

And I have the other copy sitting in front of my computer.

Started reading it online hoping it would help pass the wait time.

It's not working.

Me too... I did ED, so I read the pdf version before heading to Munich. I also re-skimmed the manual and read the supplemental manuals the first night I had the car...

Exactly. What else is there to do while waiting for your car except read the manual, ask stupid questions on the boards and order Zaino?
