Model S Owners manual needed

I remember renting a Model S in October, 2013 and it came with a bound paper manual. It was a P85, so not sure if manuals were provided across the product line even then. Current models only come with a short quick start manual and the online version. Bound Model S manuals are definitely collector's items.
Sure there are paper manuals, this is what came with my 2013 P85:

Says written for firmware 5.0
You're not going to find one. Tesla has never printed a full paper manual. There is the quick start manual that's some very basic info and the warranty and legal disclaimers and that's about it.

Ha ha... spoken with such authority... and so wrong. But now out of date...

(uh... would have helped if I had gone to next page of messages :redface:)
