Obdstar key master VAG MQB dashboard: confirmed!

obdstar-x300-pro3-a1

But, theyre kind of different, esp in price, function and car list as well..

Xhorse is much more expensive than Obdstar tools but Xhose supports MQB immo and dash while Obdstar supports dash only

Note that Xhorse VVDI2 is the only key programmer can be used for VAG MQB platform instrument immobiliser. Instrument with NEC35XX (Continental/VDO)

Xhorse VVDI2 works perfect in BMW and VAG key programming.

Have it if BMW key programming is required.

If not, go for Obdstar tools - cheaper but working good, support more MQB types

If you need a tool for VAG immo and dashboard, go for Obdstar H110;

If you need a universal odometer correction tool, go for Obdstar X300M;

If you works for a workshop, go for Obdstar key master and you’ll never look back.

Maybe, some guys may be unlucky if even do so. And that is another possible reason:

the Voltage is too large and heat is not good ---> overheating then burn the 4th mcu chip. Replace the 4th chip using a heat gun or sent it back to seller to repair your carprog full.
