Carsoft 7.4, Are these good ones I found?

I am about to buy carsoft 7.4 and i can get it with or without a Multiplexer. i don't need a printer. i want to diag my whole car, do live data. all the stuff the dealer does but i don't know what the Multiplexer does, it is just for the printer?

this is what i am looking at buying but i am not sure if it is correct....

Carsoft would not do "everything the dealer can do" but could be reasonable for an older MB for generic diagnosis purposes.

The multiplexer is needed between your computer and the car, you know you can already print documents without any additional HW. Remember that this multiplexer is not the same dealers use with DAS.

I have a 2001 clk55 i want to run a full computer diag, check all sensors, relays, everything. I am temped to buy that one from deal extreme tomorrow.

when i went to a shop that repairs MB and BMW mostly they hooked up carsoft 7.4 to my car and it told them everything, he said he could reprogram my ecu and could remove the speed limiter on my car with it. he wouldn't remove the limiter for me though.

I just bought carsoft and it's a pretty usefull tool. I can also see my live data etc. So the question: how do i know if all the parameters are normal? Does anyone know if there is manual or something that i check if everything i see in the live data is withing a normal range?
