Because I'm a retentive engineer
Bad enough I have to pay $50 atop an $80K car to get a manual to keep in the glovebox and one to read sitting at my computer. Worse to pay that for an older version which may or may not accurately depict my car's features. I'd have a hard time arguing if they sent me a NEWER manual, but I can't pay for an older one - and given that it's 9 months or so since the printing date, I can't really stomach being shipped older stock.
You may well be right, the differences may well be minimal, but I shouldn't have to figure that out....
I do like the A8 manual pouch as suggested by AudiEnthusiasts.COM though!
