depends on the budget Sep 16, 2005

Hello Mohamed,

the best seems to be Wyhlidal, but it's way to expensive. The basic terminology can be found in Schmitt Pons lexiface Kfz-Fachwörterbuch.
You'll never find everything in one dictionary. There are too many brand specific terms and mistakes in all the manuals.

Regards

Noe

Try this one... Sep 16, 2005

I quite often find special terms in here. One of my "test words" is "Simmering", which is contained.

Please note that postings in the German forum should generally be in Germany.

I haven't used it much but it seemed OK when I did.
