Unfortunately, Audi does not publish owners' manuals in pdf format online.

Tha best owners manual for this car is: "ElsaWin" Copy on CD for 10-20$
And "Etka" is the parts cataloge for this car.Audi's service garages use these books.
I purchased it on eBay (eBay item number:

400647517796)

No car maker gives away service manuals, and online PDFs would be giving them away.

I'm not sure how but Audi apparently also does not even SELL service manuals until the cars are two years out of production. Even AllData can't supply access to Audi service data until the cars are two years old, and that's by contract with Audi.

So if the OP's Allroad isn't at least two years old...Good luck, you'll have to contract with Audi as an auto repair shop, if they'll even do that for you.

EKTA is not sold to the public for new cars, through any channel, AFAIK.

How AUDI gets away with this when this would generally be called "restraint of trade" and illegal in the US, I have no idea.

I believe the OP was referring to the user manuals, not the service manuals, correct?

Audi won't post the owner's manuals for the same reason: They own the copyright, they're not giving them away. They'll be glad to sell you a set though.

There are some bootleg versions posted online in HTML but no "professional" all in one PDF that I've heard of. Possibly on the bootleg sites.

But if you've bought and paid for the car and are just waiting a week for it to come in...maybe the dealer will give you the manual from one of their demos or salesmen's cars now, in trade for taking your new one when it arrives?
