    FS: Mercedes Benz STAR Diagnostic C3

    I have access to some STAR DAS C3 systems. This unit comes with all the cables and multiplexers you need. All you need is a laptop with a serial port connection. STAR DAS runs from the external hard drive as virtual machine one you laptop. 3 board members have already purchased this system off me.

    In recent years, Chinese forgers, who excel at making fake copies of everything from Louis Vuitton purses to Guess Jeans to Rolex watches, have set

    their sights on the MB STAR market (and other automotive diagnostic systems for other marques). This has resulted in a cottage industry whereby one

    could purchase an MB STAR system for anywhere between $600 and $1,200. Over the past year or so, as Chinese copies of the MB STAR C4 system

    have come onto the market, the prices of the MB STAR C3 system have come down to a typical range of $250-450, depending on the vendor and the

    items included in the package.

    These "clone" systems are easily available on sites like eBay and also from hundreds of vendors. As with any Chinese copy of anything,

    quality varies and quite often -- but not always -- one gets what they pay for. The recent reduction in price of the MB STAR C3 systems has made even

    relatively good quality systems very very affordable for the DIY mechanic and/or MB enthusiast -- providing them with the same diagnostic power as the

    dealership mechanic (but not the same level of training and knowledge). Typical options that are available with MB STAR C3 systems available on the

    Internet include: an array of cables; a multiplexer; a hard drive containing the MB STAR software package; and instructions on how to set up the system.

    The software typically includes: MB Xentry, WIS, EPC, STAR Utilities; EWA net; Star Browser; Star Finder; and a recent MB parts price list (which goes

    out of date quickly). Quite a number of vendors also provide Internet support, including the ability to remotely control systems over the Internet (with the

    user's permission, of course) to diagnose installation and software problems.

    There has been precious little information on the Internet about the Chinese MB STAR C3 systems, how they operate, and in general how the system

    operates. This thread will be a thorough, methodical investigation of how the system works, what it looks like, and how it can be used with the E500E

    (and by extension, the 400E/E420). It is up to the individual owner as to whether they need or would want such a unit. It would be overkill for many if not

    most owners. However, there are a number of owners who do want to do their own maintenance and want the tools to help them do this properly. For

    these owners, purchasing an HHT or MB STAR system may be a good idea.
