ELM327 for pre-facelift slk

Hi everyone. I'd like to share my experience with you. A couple of days ago I was thinking of buying a cheap scanner to read engine parameters, find and erase trouble codes and came across the mentined above USB adapter. Having searched different forums where people doubted its ability to connect to the ECU (pre-facelift European models do not have OBD connector under the steering wheel) I decided to give it a try. And now I can say it works (engine only) and the live parameters appear to be quite accurate (compared to STARdiag). I hope it might be useful for those looking for a cheap solution. There are some minor details about installing, setting and connecting I'll eagerly share should it be necessary.
Here are some pics. Enjoy:

According to your request I've uploaded some pics. Sorry for the poor quality, but the only stuff available was my old nokia. Should anyone need installation instructions and free software (the software on the cd in the package is crappy) feel free to contact me.
