Just when I was starting to get comfortable using the EPC?????
Microsoft Bob. Still have a copy on 3.5" floppies. Now there's a vintage OS.DOS?!? Really? Oh man, it's worse than I thought, folks.
I have an original CD copy of Windows 2000, with the serial number sticker on the case, that I would be glad to send you. It would at least get you into this century.
Wish I'd have known this a couple of days ago, as I would have enclosed it with the check I sent you for the LH EPROMS.
How accurate are the code descriptions for paint colors and options? In the past, the EPC often had ridiculous translations for some codes. Would be nice if the new setup had this rectified.... One other GREAT thing that the new Pee-Pee system's data cards provide are translations of all of the special codes (SA codes). The old EPC provided the codes, but didn't translate them.
The SA codes are different from the standard "option codes" found on the data cards. The EPC provides translation for the option codes, but not for the SA codes.
Not sure about what cars, but I was recently told by the Classic Center that data cards were $150. Thankfully, I have both of mine for the 220SEb.How accurate are the code descriptions for paint colors and options? In the past, the EPC often had ridiculous translations for some codes.

On a related note, my dealer just told me MB is now charging a princely sum of $150 for "a datacard from Germany".
I'm not sure if that means all datacards, or only datacards which are unavailable in the EPC / XPISS (i.e., really old stuff from the 1960's or prior).
Thanks for posting! What color is "METALLICLACK"? Seems to be a fair amount of Germanglish, which is odd. Really like the SA descriptions!I've attached the EPC data card, the Pee-Pee data card, and the VMI from my own car, for comparison. Check for yourself !!
Metalliclack means "Metallic Paint" in German. Lackierung is the long form of the word "paint."Thanks for posting! What color is "METALLICLACK"? Seems to be a fair amount of Germanglish, which is odd. Really like the SA descriptions!
Still, this is better than the old EPC, which showed the paint color on your VIN as "APPLICATION CODE FOR COMPONENT PROCESSING". LOL.
The first-aid kits used in MBNA/MBUSA cars are made specifically for MBNA/MBUSA, to their spec ... and more importantly to the US DOT spec. It's a different spec than "Yurro" first aid kits.Here is a Data Card quandary I have always wondered about... why do all US Spec (or at least all US spec cars I have ever looked up) include '634 Elimination of First Aid Box' on the build sheet?
All US spec cars came with a First Aid kit AFAIK...?
I don't mind it, mainly because it works with a Mac (or any platform) now.Is it only me that likes the new system?
