Bentley vs. Haynes Manual

I currently own an e36 Bentley's manual, but is there anything missing that is in the Haynes manual (I know it's 1/3 the thickness)? It's $20 at Canadian Tire and I was just wondering if it's worth it to pick it up.

For my E30 I have 3 different service manuals and they all provide some stuff that the other does not have.

But the bentley manual is very good...

The Haynes is at Canadian Tire, sorry for the confusion.

last I looked the Bentley manuals were available at Chapters online and at Canadian Tire you could special order Chilton's manual for the e36s ... I have the chilton, it is okay. Haven't seen the bentley so I can't really make a comparison for you.

later
