Looking for best option MB Scan tool

Michael Owner/Technician Montreal, Quebec Posted   Latest  

Hey guys,

Looking to invest in some new tooling. Right now i have a snap on & autel for everyday use and a Ford VCM 3 (selling my vcm 2 if anyones interested) & GM Mdi 2 with laptops for each. Looking at what we do a lot of and what would be most worth it for me to get next (im slowly starting to do more & more mobile diag.) Mercedes would be the best thing for me. (im doing more & more at the shop & more and more on the road) I was wondering if anybody has any idea what the best bet for me would be (id prefer factory) to be as up to date as possible for MB.

Thanks

Xentry would definitely be the best for MB but expensive. Good aftermarket options are autologic and iscan.

hello, how much for vcm II ( Ford)? please post details. for MBZ daily repairs: Autoland is the One and or combinations of AVDI and Launch x431 Pad III Euro Version. Xentry Dash is a little imposible to get. there is a company in england who sell it already installed for a price OEM. can't remember the name. Autologic will become a pain for you eventually.

Xentry is great. I have no regrets getting it. Buy it right from Mercedes. There are some restrictions for immo access, mainly you can't program keys. With an LSID you can buy TRP parts that they will not sell to just anyone.

Even with a legit unit they still won't let you do keys?

I don’t know how Mercedes Works in canada but here in europe you can get a xentry pass thru version for euro5/6 cars with scn coding, software update. It can be used with your MDI2 tool as multiplexer.

When Baum was sending referrals to MBUSA for SDS systems, they had to be sent to an US address and the cashiers' check had to be from an US bank. Just some things to look into before you start talking to MB
