comment Third brake light (LED) test
@CarlB You can try browsing a Haynes / Chilton manual, maybe at a library and see if they have what you need. The factory manuals are spendy, but handy if you're going to do much work on your own car. Hard to justify for one repair, though. Intermittent problems are the worst. If you can get a multimeter on the light and the switch when the problem is occurring, you can narrow down the problem. If the switch is implicated, that is something you might be able to replace yourself.

comment Mercedes C320 2003 tires & rims
Significant changes to the tire diameter could throw off the speedometer and odometer. Probably they don't recommend any size where this would be the case. Might not be a problem, depending on which axle the speed sensor is on.

Be aware that the data frame rate might not be anything to write home about with entry level tools. Certainly better than nothing, though.

Unfortunately, I think this is off-topic. If anybody wants to discuss, I suggest it is done in Meta.
