    I would offer to do this for you but our Star is currently out of action. Try Europa in Sheffield they are very amenable at this sort of thing. If you are still struggling let me know and I'll find someone to do it for you.

    I'm amazed they do a lot of warranty work and coding for MB and are an authorised MB workshop we have had cars done there, sounds like you might have been talking to the wrong person.

    Try DAMAS in Clowne linky HERE

    or DS Services Wincobank HERE

    Tell them Ian from JAR Motorsport sent you and they will look after you, DAMAS are top notch and def have star:thumb:

    thanks for the links! i will try DAMAS in the morning! i called ds services today and talked with a chap there! i was asking if he new about adding with the star system in developer mode & he was not sure ?? its not easy to get some one in my aria that knows about adding extra things! i'm a computer programmer so if all else fails i may even invest in a star system & learn how to do it my self @ this rate...

    DAMAS are good but if they can't help let me know and I'll borrow a Star and get our guy to do it for you. Our Star failed and we never replaced it as for diagnostic work we use snap on and bosch but that doesn't help anyone who wants things adding or tweaking in developer mode
