I got the tech dvd , and it works excellent , and the icing on the cake is it covers all models from the 450 up up the the 453 and a bunch of other Mercedes models including the Unimog ! .

Where did you get the tech DVD? Got a link? Does it cover the electrics?

Time to get a cheap laptop just for Smart diagnostics. It may be worth the small cost, figure a typical repair from a Mercedes based dealership is around $150 an hour now

Yeah, I guess I'll have to do that, the Alpine Head Unit w/GPS in my RV can only be updated using a PC so I suppose I could hide one in my closet or at least put an Apple sticker on it. :D

I forgot (and had never tried) that you can partition the hard drive on a Mac and run windows in one partition while retaining the Mac OS on the other partition. I did that yesterday and was able to download all the firmware updates I needed for the Alpine in my RV so I went ahead and ordered the Service Manual CDs. Hopefully they will work too and I won't have to buy another computer.

Thanks for the find, I had given up on having a service manual. Now I won't be bending everyone's ear on this forum quite so much. :D

As an added bonus, the manuals also cover our Mercedes SLK and Sprinter based RV so I'll be using them a lot!
