this is what i use daily.. it is still a generic unit.. but it has the neat feature that once you plug it into the OBD2 port..  and you have downloaded the vehicle data into it.. it has on the keypad a red X and yellow x and a green check mark.. if the green light comes on.. most of the times the car will pass smog testing.

this is their best scan tool at harbor freight.

but this is one of the benz tool catalogs you will want to look thru.

page 77 is is the start of several pages of scan tools and diagnostic equipment.


this is probably the adapter cable you need to work with other OTC diagnostic equipment  http://www.otctools.com/products/38-pin-adapter-cable


that should work with the first 3 scan tools listed..

it all depends on how deep into diagnostics you want to dive. nothing is cheep on a benz.  and nothing is cheep for a benz.   my sisters boyfriend was a benz mechanic in 1977. his take home checks were almost $2,500 a week.
