MB STAR C3(for old cars)

“For my car I already have an OBD tool but I need something that will read/reset the Mercedes-specific codes. SRS codes for example.”
“One other section that is not mentioned is that the C3 ,i don’t know about the C4 ,but ,the c3 requires all the cables connected to the car & the Laptop plus possible power to laptop & internet in some case (me) .
The Cables are the Fat 38 pin / C3 cable to Laptop / the ADSL cable/ Laptop connection /mouse (wireless) & laptop power ,to many cables all over the engine or in the cabin ,i didn’t like that at all.”
“For mercedes Benz, C3 and C4 also can do work, in my opnion, C4 work with all the benz and more than C3, but C3 can do benz truck very well, this is advantage for c3.”
“C4 is much stronger in anti-interrupting ability, when C4 tests cars, it’s hard to influence by the environmenr outside, such as magnetic field，noise. C4 is much smaller in the appearance than C3.”
“The biggest difference, i think, is connection wiring mode, C3 need 232 port, but C4 can be used with network port, even wireless.”
If you want to purchase a “future proof” device that can read old and new cars, then purchase a mb star C4/C5
