=================================================

From: mbenthusiast@callnetuk.com

a) bank transfer in Euro (EUR) to German account in Euros, or

b) bank transfer in Pound Sterling (GBP) to UK bank account.

If that is more convenient to you, we can arrange for a paypal
payment to be transferred to us through a club member (we do not hold
such an account ourselves). But that is NOT possible as a credit card
payment via paypal. It is only acceptable if cash funds are sent via
paypal (i.e. you must hold the money as credit in you paypal account
or arrange for it to be transferred to your paypal account
beforehand).

Western Union money transfer can also be arranged if possible.

If your contacts in the UK would make the payments on your behalf,
the easiest and fastest way is payment in cash into UK account. CDs
can usually be despatched the same day.

Delivery is only via mail, either by Airmail to your address in
Australia, or we can arrange for delivery to your contacts in the UK
(postage would be reduced to 6 Euro in that case). We cannot accept
cash payments in person.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to
let me know.

Kind regards
James
==============================================

The lure of cheap EPC and WIS might be enough to someone willing to send to this creep who has no PayPal account, no address and doesnt accept any payment with purchase protection.

Caveat Emptor.

The price changes all the time. Excuses but nothing in reality.

Currently on special offer price: EUR 198,- + shipping

So you cant trust such a source. Seems like a joke.

Huh from who, mercedes or the seller where we talk here?

Mike

This James fella is not good news. I bought the WIS on eBay.

Sorry for that comment being so misleading.

I strongly suspect that the James character is just trying to steer clear of anyone from MB that may disapprove of his merchandise. I have to say that I wouldn't trust him either and did look into a (similar) opportunity a while back for similar money, but backed off as the seller gave me no confidence that what I would receive wouldn't be time limited, faulty or affordable.

I do know of someone that has a North American version that works fine (only costs a tenner ;)), but doesn't list models that weren't exported to the US, so no 220CDI engine bits. Still very useful for other parts though.

Ian.

Hi, Guys

Wis has to run under Windows NT. And the CDs are only update data. Even if you can
install it, system will give you a LAN ID, and ask you keyin a License Key, then Wis can
be used. However, after 02/2003, Mercedes use DVD not CD.
