Hi all. I've never before owned an MB but have admired and ridden in many. Today, after much searching, I finally found what I have been looking for. Not just any old benz, but the king of beasts. A 2005 CL65 AMG. Depreciation being what it is, these supercars have finally come into the affordable price range for those of us who aren't zillionaires. Amazing what falling out of warranty does to a valuation. I'm not worried though, I got a 62,000 mile car with a great documented maintenance history proving all recommended service performed every 10K miles per the book including all those extra things like plugs, belt, and fluid flushes. Not that I plan on ever bringing it back to MB for service anyways, I'm a fairly competent shade tree mechanic. I will have to get the STAR software and interface device for my laptop though. Does anyone have any advice on where to obtain good diagnostic tools at a reasonable price?

Welcome to Benzworld, Click on the search function and in the Google search box type Star diagnostic and enter.
