Not driving your car to keep miles off it for resale value is like not having sex with your girl so she is nice and tight for the next guy.

If it anything like the DVD for my 90 w126 it sucks,remember going to the dealer in Newport Beach Ca Fletcher Jones and buying it for $150! asked the parts guy "sporting a suite" any tranny info in it? he replies NO! owners of these cars don't need that info!

Talking

I tried Alldatadiy last year ...I was not convinced ...& I stopped ...
You now can get,on eBay , for less than $20 a DVD strict copy of the MBstar ...
Please ...don't ask me where they are coming frombut ....quite efficient ,cheap and convenient for my 129.
As I have compared that file to the original MB WIS ..I 've not seen any difference ..way of infos access excepted ...

I got this on eBay, works and seems pretty good so far. I had an install problem, emailed them and they called me back and fixed it.
