Added 20 foreign language reviews.  Mostly German.

I might be able to get it on my Windoze 7 laptop, but my main computer  runs Bodhi Linix  and Firefox, so I'm getting nothing.

Rick each one is just a google drive link so it should work OK on Firefox.
When you say you are getting nothing - what exactly do you mean?

Some of the links give me trouble as Google doesn't seem to like my version of Explorer... :(

OK,
I've changed the links so that they don't use the Google Page browser, but they push the document straight to you as a download.  It works on Mac/Chrome, Win7/IE9, but I don't really have any way of checking pre-historic versions of software, or Linux/FFox

Please let me know if it works - if it still gives dodgy results I'll move the files off Google and on to my own web server

Cool, thanks Roro! I'm gonna look at some later to see how it works.   :)

I've had a chance to explore some of these links which all seem to work flawlessly for me now. There really is a wealth of interesting and usefull articles, manuals, reviews, ads etc. in there. A rich and thorough library of resources that further adds to the Vision ownership experience. Thank you Roro.  :)

Just added a brochure for the Japanese variant of the vision - the XZ550D.  See the first post in this thread.
The 550D has a rather special colour scheme if you haven't seen it before.

Just added a scan of the Garage Poster that came with some copies of the XZ550 Haynes Workshop manual.  See the first post in this thread - under Service Manuals

A fairly poor original sorry - I think that smear in the middle is blood and I had to scan it in pieces and stitch it.

I printed this out as A3 and it looks cool on the garage wall together with the colour wiring diagram also in A3.  One day I'll get them laminated perhaps.

Thanks for the upload although I'm a bit concerned about the blood  :o Is this an indictment on Vision maintenance difficulty or did you have to kill someone for the poster!?  ;)

@Rick, I changed the way it sent the files so it would be compatible with your Linux / Firefox system.

You probably have the old CD that was being sold, but there's a huge amount of stuff here that was never on the CD - worth having a bit of a browse.  Let me know of any links that don't work and I'll fix them right up.

@Rikugun, The poster came with the blood already on it.  I don't know about you but I've donated at least a pint of blood and a couple of fingernails to my vision quest.  Less now that I have some decent spanners that don't round off and scrape my knuckles off.

I've had a couple more requests for all these manuals, brochures etc on a DVD.  Seems some people have troubles downloading such a large amount of data what with data charges and volume caps etc.

I'll send a DVD out free to anyone who wants it, and even cover the cost of the DVD - all I ask is that you pay postage.
