CarSoft cable

Hello
I have a copy of CarSoft 7.4 and I would like to use it to read all the codes on my car. European SLK230.

Any advice on what cable I should buy. I'm based ion the UK but can only find US sites supplying them for around $100.

My car has a CAM Bus. Is it important to use the serial conenction rather than the USB port.

Any advice much appreciated

Thanks

Hi David, as far as I'm aware you need an OBD11 cable which connects to a multiplexer which connects to the PC...that's the set up MB use for SDS. On Ebay there are plenty of cables, multiplexers etc....Have a look there, just make sure everything is compatible.....!!

HTH

Thanks. It's just making sure it's compatible that's the problem!
