Review from Martin Atkinson: I love my xhorse tools

Review from Martin Atkinson:

I have VVDI-Prog, VVDI MB and VVDI2.

VVDI-Prog is an amazing tool to compliment the VVDI MB and VVDI2

if it won’t read with the adapters I just solder on only had one so far that wouldn’t actually read once I had cleaned it up. But tbf I’ve only used xhorse tools for Mb so far

Tips from an experienced user: Vw polos / Ibizas and similar systems have problems on key learning menu cause ecus it locks itself and doesn’t allow you to do the process even if vvdi2 said successful ….as long as you read cluster on those k line there is another way to add key directly and faster than do key learning .

 

In sum I love my xhorse tools. If you know what your doing and know the systems they are brilliant. I just need to get more acquainted with the BMW systems
