    Having been ripped off by a internet download firm www.emanualonline.com for the above manual despite their "If you have downloaded the manual within 14-days and you are not happy, then we can either offer any other manual up to the same amount or offer a credit to your account in the same amount." Not only did it not work but took five days to come to that conclusion and then have failed to reply oddly to my request.
    Anyway, avoid at all costs luckily only £10 but I will take that up with Visa.
    Now the question is has anyone bought the 4 CD set as I see one from the USA available at about £20 and had any success. It reportedly covers all MB and Smart 1986-2017.
    Any recommendations?

    Just noticed one from the UK on a 32GB memory stick for about the same price?

    I have the 4 dvd version which I bought last year. You really need a good spec laptop. I'm running it on an old Dell Latitude D620. I had to upgrade the processor (Core2Duo) to support virtualization and increase the memory to 4GB. On the Quad-core, 8GB PC it runs smooth. You can print off hard copies or as xms file.

    I think I have a DVD set somewhere.
    I'm coming over through Cherbourg on the overnight ferry into Cherbourg on the 26th (arriving 27th) and can bring it with me if you want it?
    I'll look tonight if you're interested.

    Thanks for that info.
    I've an old Dell Latitude E6320 2 Core with 6GB so it may struggle as well, looks like I'll have to ask Santa for a new one. Technology is never simple!

    Thanks very much Allister but just after reading what W245207 said it looks like I'd need a new PC first and unfortunately (?) I'll be away over Christmas but if you PM me (I haven't done that before) I would be willing to pay for it and the postage if I can find a suitable PC sometime.
    It's because I've a project (long term and getting longer) to get another car CLK at the moment and would like to have the benefit of the info.
    Thanks again.

    Mines is ok, as long as I don't multi task. The full extracted image is 54GB. I paid £10 from UK seller.

    This was from a USA site direct with a guarantee, " We offer a 14-day money-back guarantee for ALL products. If you have downloaded the manual within 14-days and you are not happy, then we can either offer any other manual up to the same amount or offer a credit to your account in the same amount."
    Turns out the "support" is in Panama, it took 3 attempts to download eventually through a gmail account and 20HOURS! after loading a virtual machine it worked once until I turned it off and then never worked again. They said I needed to remove security software off my computer, so at that I asked for a refund and since no reply.

    It's a shame WIS online site is down and was working few months ago. This is why I like BMW, TIS is available online including wiring diagrams.

    :D I use the dell for WIS only. if I start browsing the net as well, it will slow down and eventually become unresponsive. I need more memory, 4GB is max for that machine :(. It does the job.

    Not found the DVDs yet but I have found the files that were on them :) (I copied them to a hard disk as a backup).
    Let me see if I can find somewhere to drop them online where you can get to them. They total 24GB.

    Thanks very much.
    Don't go to any trouble as I can wait to see if you they turn up as W245207 says my PC will run the CD's OK.
    I get an urge every now and again to collect all the information I can, something about thinking (wishing) I'm in control.:p:p:p

    Strange, I have just tried the links and each WIS took me about 3-4 mins each.

    Shouldn't need to, it should just download but as I use Chrome I can't be sure.
