Question Which service manual is best?

Just purchased a 2000 S80, 2.8L, auto with Turbos. Looking to buy a good service manual (written or Windows based) which has information needed for in depth service, rebuild and diagnostics.

Purchased VADIS but does not have electrical or vacuum schematics.
Is good for common repairs (timing belts, starters, alternators etc) but does not have information on auxiliary components used on the Turbo system (valve attached to TCV), location of ground points so I can figure out why starter is causing electrical interference etc.

What will provide me with this information and is reasonable in cost?
Thank you

Looked at IPD and the book they offer is for 5 cylinder version, not 6 cylinder which is what I have.
Was not able to find a book anywhere which covers the 2000 S80 with the 2.8L turbo six cylinder.
Does anyone have experiece with Alldata and how was it?

Default Still would like to find a good manual.

Bought Alldata but it did not have vacuum schematics for my vehicle.
Does anyone have a suggestion where I can find data which has details on how the Turbo system operates?
Purchased VADIS as well which provides some data but did not have a vacuum schematic or a lot of details on the Turbo system.
