WIS software

Recently there has been some discussion about the MB WIS software. The WIS is the digital manual the Mercedes technicians use to maintain and repair our cars.

Many folks would like a copy, as many people like to perform their own maintenance. HOWEVER, after some serious discussion with official representatives of MB, we have determined that ownership of the WIS software is restricted to official MB users, and the copies for sale on eBay and from other private sellers are either pirated or considered stolen.

Just as we can not promote threads on how to hot-wire a car, or how to break in and steal a radio, this forum can not permit repeated discussion on how to obtain pirated software. It would expose this privately owned forum and it's owner to possible legal action and might threaten the future existence of the forum.

Unfortunately for those members who refuse to acknowledge that fact, those posts which advocate theft will be removed.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
