Default Repair manual?

So i went to go buy a repair manual for my GXP. Got a Haynes manual for the full sized Pontiac, brought it home, read through it, and realized it had now reference for the GXP. I took it back and went looking for a Chilton manual. Found one at Napa, looked on the back and it said "not for V8 model". So my question is, What manual do you guys use?

I checked it out. 135.00 for 3 volumes. Just a bit pricey. Has anyone had any luck with those dvd service manuals you can get for 30 bucks on ebay?

I'm thinking they will be the same. Unfortunately the weren't many GXP'* made. So publishers dont want to take the time/labor expense considering the possible sales numbers. Danthurs has a CD set, PM him and ask if it has a GXP section. Knowing him, it probably isn't an eBay set though. I'm only 4 years/46k miles into my 7/70 GMPP so I really haven't had the need yet. But it'* good you gave others a heads up on this. Maybe someone else may chime in here with a cheaper reference manual.
