The OAP will also allow you to run a much larger alternator. I'm using a 150a alternator from an R230 SL.

Meh, there's nothing special about a w204. Nobody is going to miss it. I'm looking forward to seeing the 500hp R107 with a modern transmission.

My point is if you know how to use an OBD2 scan tool you can use a icarsoft MB2 or Foxwell nt520. You don't need a $600 software. Just the right scan tool.
