We were fortunate enough to visit Bentley during the making of this book and saw first hand just how comprehensive their research is. In fact, the FLATSIXES.com 993 (that's it in the Bentley studio above) will be featured in a section on sunroofs as they used our '97 993 C4S to document various procedures and fixes.
Here's What Bentley Say About The Manual
"The Porsche 911 Carrera (Type 993) Service Manual: 1995-1998" covers the legendary Type 993 Porsche 911 models, highly coveted by Porsche fans as the last of the air-cooled Porsche 911s. Developed by the Bentley Publishers technical editors with the same depth and precision as the award-winning Porsche 911 Carrera (Type 996) Service Manual: 1998-2005, this book features full-color repair procedures, detailed technical specifications and useful maintenance information in a durable hardcover format for the dedicated 993 owner or service technician.
