Buying an SDS 4 - Try to Buy Old Version?
I have a chinese SDS 3 and have been pleased with its ability to diagnose problems. I've been thinking about buying an SDS 4 as well. It seems like most sellers just have the latest cracked software. But, if I understand it correctly, older versions of Xentry also give the ability to change values as well unlike the new versions, unless you purchase an API key. I see the utility in that ability to change values in that the values for the TPMS alerts in one of my cars are all over the place, 4 different values, one for each tire.
Has anyone had any luck buying an SDS 4 with older Xentry software? Are there any sellers on Alibaba or other marketplaces that anyone recommends? When I bought my SDS 3, I went with someone who had some good ratings, and who also answered questions quickly and in good English. Everything worked out OK, but I am always open to trying another provider.
Mercedes Benz, they are addictive, 97 E420, 98 S420, 06 S500 and an 11 S550.
