Theyre the same.

Toasty,
I think you can still get yours for 1/2 price from helm.com, 'til 1/31/06.

99-2000 Service Manuals at 1/2 price - Helm.com

Vital49 got his '99s for $78 shipped...

I'd go with the reds, but like PDad previously stated, way too much$. The half price sale by Helm Publications is a good deal like Lash pointed out. I paid $120 + shipping a few years back for my FSM'* by Helm.

I was just going to post this same subject. I went to the helminc site and brought a set for my 2001 bonny. Total price with shipping $74.45. This is the cheapest I've ever seen. I even called to make sure that you get both books. The guy said yes. It weighs about 10lbs. Now I can fix all the stupid little things wrong with my car. Save some money. They should of gave us all a set when we brought our cars.
