Diagnostics package for DIY

Hello all,
I am interested in obtaining diagnostics package (reader with soft) for my MB C200 CL203 Coupe model 2003. Could you advice me please what I shall be looking for?
I have found STAR C3 or C4 package, is that good enough to read all details about errors and does it provide good enough details for repair and service manuals?
Thanks.

I just ordered the Star Diagnostics C4 from OBD2.com after searching and reading about them all night. Its a chinese version of the real thing and this website accepts payment through paypal so I felt more secure. The purchase price including shipping from china was $1148 but i found a coupon code on google which saved me $60 bucks. It comes with the multiplexer, all cables and a second hand laptop with the software already installed on it. As far as I know, these can do everything that the dealers can, with the exception of flash. Im not sure how that works exactly but I wanted to know if I buy a part from ebay or a junk yard, will I be able to install and program it on my mercedes s500, or is it not rewriteable to my car. Even if I bought an electronic ignition switch or something like that from a dealer brand new, will I be able to program it with this machine? I will let you know when I receive it and test it out for myself.

Sorry but as long as you are not a forum supporter I'll follow your posts and will keep informing forum members that they have to be careful if they follow your suggestions.

I opened your last five threads and everyone had a link to this funny website (not google as at this message). It is obvious that you are just advertising your products for free. Up to forum moderators to act or not but at least I'll give a warning every time you add a link to this same shop.
