Credit card!

Can't do much work on my cars no time, not much skills either.
Are you talking of some special MB tools or any workshop tools?

I'm thinking of ANY tool necessary for MB repairs.

Tools are in millimetres Yes? Makes for different tools
I learned yesterday of a special dipstick for Transmission Oil Change.
Heck; I didn't know that......

Ok that's on my list
Oil Filter Wrench
Tranny Dipstick
Master Charge? Hmm....

By oil filter wrench, do you mean oil filter socket? If not, get it. I'd also add a pressure bleeder for the brake fluid and maybe an OBDII scanner.

as a MB tech I would have to say

1. plastic wedge or wedge set to remove almost all panels
2. oil filter wrench
3. internal and external torx sockets cause all MB bolts are torx
4. Trans Dipstick to check fuild level when doing tranny repairs
5. Airtools
