Here's some answers. . . .

what systems are available on the 38pin Diag Connector
Check MENU #2 showing a picture of the 38-pin connector. In the table below all of the available systems are shown for your car.

Regarding a scanner vs computer+sw: The only real advantage is the portability and compactness of the hand-held scanner vs the laptop plus adapter and sw.

The code readout is somewhat different in the OBD than what you read from the 38 pin connector with a "Mercedes" only scanner such as AST's Retreiver scanner. But a DTC is a DTC!!
