Seems to me that the more recent Haynes manuals are saying more and more to "use specialist diagnostic equipment!" blah blah!
They're harder and harder to use.

The older '80s manuals have loads more pictures and detailed instructions, although the spanner rating is missing and the pages are yellow with age!
That's a fact, actually... We had 2 Volvo 340/360 Haynes manuals, and the earlier one had almost double the number of pages as the later!

My Lag 2 Haynes is actually smaller than the one for my dad's Triumph Sprint... And I'm assuming the car has more, and more complicated parts by some way It also has comprehensive, full colour wiring diagrams whereas the Lag Haynes (both I and II) have dismal greyscale things that only show half the electronics in the car
