Which system & hardware package? 07 SLK 350 R171

I'm sure this topic has been discussed ad nauseam, but sometimes it's nice to see a thread that is to the point and specific. I'm a big time DIY guy, so I want to buy the DAS/STAR system if that's what I need for my new Benz. I like to play... I'm working on getting up to speed on the car itself so I bought an eBay DVD service manual last night that claims to cover all Mercedes in detail. $16. The screen shots looked promising so we'll see as far as that goes. More importantly, I want to be able to go into the programming and become well versed in that.
I saw all kinds of systems for sale from DVD based through buying it loaded on a laptop already. The prices were across the boards also. What is the current suggestion on what I should buy or not buy?


Thanks for any thoughts.

Hi,

You cannot do Programming with a Clone, unless it is pre 2012 Software, this has the ECU Files on it, for later Cars / SDS s/w you need Server Subscription with MB.

You can however do Version Coding, Guided Diagnostic, Developer Mode stuff and much much more

My new system will do Online Programming up to 12/2017

HTH,

Cheers Dave
