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.
