CGDI Prog BMW vs. Autohex which is better

Some people said CGDI Prog BMW is a clone of VVDI2,  others said it is Autohex replica. Anyway,  it does work and  will get your money back.

CGDI price with FEM around 700 USD, vvdi2 with BMW and fem around 2000USD, autohex over 2800-5000 usd, still $$ difference.

CGDI BMW vs. Autohex key programmer

cgdi-bmw
Programming CAS / FEM keys
Extraction ISN from DME

Autohex II:
autohex-ii
Programming CAS / FEM keys
Extraction ISN from DME
Equalization DME CAS (DME/DDE CAS adjustment )
calibrations
coding
diagnosis


User opinion:
I have cgdi bmw, at this time works good, cas3+ can read isn code and the FEM feature is free but can work. the best tool for bmw is autohex II but is very expensive than cgdi .
With isn from dme/dde it can do key in situation all keys lost, like another programmer. And there is no matter what you use – autohex, avdi, tango, cgdi – process is the same.  cgdi is good option.

For diagnosis and coding features, i can buy bmw icom with engineering hard drive, still cheaper than autohex/BMW explorer etc.

Original vs. Clone Tango Transponder Key Programmer

Is it worth the money to have a Genuine Tango key programmer? How about the quality of the Cloned? Here you go.

Part 1: what is Tango, original vs clone?
TANGO = Key maker by dump file and have some function for OBD2 in Toyota cars.

Genuine Tango has basic software, made by Scorpio
Clone OEM Tango has full software,made by Fly


Part 2: Tango key programmer good or not?

clone Tango: poor quality

The Chinese sell genuine (OEM) and original Tango. The OEM one is from FLY and it is cheaper with poorer quality.
The original Tango is from scorpio. At that price it won’t be a clone.

Tango from fly: waste time and money

don’t waste time and money for Tango from fly… Last week I bought original Tango from scorpio so I can compare and every keys and dump which China Tango can NOT program the original Tango did it straight away without any problem!!!

Buy clone Tango from FLY = Buy Disappointment
Buy original Scorpio Tango = Buy Happiness

clone Tango: bad PCB

This is what i have. China clone…the board is not good, poor quality
tango-clone-pcb-1

tango-clone-pcb-2

tango-clone-pcb-3

tango-clone-pcb-4
original Tango: happy

I got mine http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/super-tango-key-programmer-with-basic-software.html
It is original and support from Scorpio is second to none. Got help on a Sunday morning from them!
Everything from Fly is rubbish. There has been enough posted about them and their products on this and other forums to make an informed choice and avoid their products.
I have no connection with any sellers. But I am always happy to share info on good products and sellers.


Part 3: Can I buy Tango original from China?

Scorpio Tango from a Chinese distributor: happy
Scorpio have a Chinese distributor who supplies all Chinese sellers.
It is a 100% original tool which you must register with Scorpio for updates and support.
I have one and it is a great tool. I bought mine from obdii365.com and I am very happy with it.

Original Tango from China: good tool;

The Chinese sell genuine and original Tango. It is not a clone. I bought one. I am not an idiot. I saved a little money. I get one to one support from Scorpio, even on a Sunday morning. It is a very good tool. 100% original. Best tool I ever got from China.


In conclusion:

To be a locksmith:
go for the Genuine but you have to invest more than a Tango

For fun:
you can try with the Clone; probably it is ok for a DIYer, if you have the luck

My advice is:
don’t buy any tango from Fly, you never know what will happen to you

Lexia 3 Diagbox on Windows 8 works well with Peugeot 407

Lexia 3 cables arrived last Saturday. And fun began with a Peugeot 407.

It took 5 days from order to delivery.
I bought 8 units, one for myself and others for my customers. I have a shop to sell vehicle diagnostic tools, in Moscow, Russia.
lexia3-diagbox
there mainly are two kinds of Chinese Lexia3. One cheaper but lack some chips, the other with full chips of high quality.

I disassembled one unit to look the board, said it’s 1:1 clone of the original.

And worked good on Peugeot 407.
