1972 MB 250C Shop manual recommendations

I recently purchased the 250C and am finally ready to start working on the car. I need a good shop manual and was wondering if anyone purchased this version (cost is $20 for the download):

Mercedes-Benz W114/W115 (220, 220D, 230, 240D, 250, 250C, 280, 280C...

Any recommendations for a good, not too expensive manual would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Slowpoke17

The factory service manual is pretty much as good as it gets. Is also readily available as a torrent.

Instagram @derstrichacht for interesting W114/5 pics.

I tried the Online Services, assuming I was at the right spot it said no longer available:

Online Factory Repair Manuals for 114, 115, 116, 123, 124, 126, and 201 chassis

http://mb.braingears.com

Feel free to post other valuable sources of tech info here.

Edit: Sorry folks -- braingears is no more.
