CGDI Prog BMW Reviews

I just got the CGDI for BMW based on reading good reviews for their Mercedes tool. Have not seen much info for the BMW tool so I thought Id give a quick run down from my experience so far with the tool.

For making keys it has worked great. I have made about 7 keys so far all CAS types except CAS4.

I tried to read ISN on 3 cars and failed. I think it may only read ISN from MSV80/85 ecu’s. Will try on the MSV80 soon and will update. All done by OBD.

I have BMWExplorer and have used Autohex as well, but if you only need to program keys and your not concerned with ISN for DME swaps, I would buy the CGDI before those tools.

Its supposed to do ISN but the advertising wording can be misleading. It may only be able to read ISN of 2 types of DME. So far thats how its looking. Will contact my vendor to verify and see if there is an update preventing ISN reads.

For the money its worth it just to be able to program the CAS3 keys. It works super fast literally less than 2 minutes beginning to end. Faster than BMWExplorer for sure. I have yet to successfully do FEM key with Explorer so as far as Im concerned it has the same key programming capability as the CGDI.

Reviews form CGDI BMW owners, talking about what works and what doesn’t

So far I tried

Cas 2 – E60 2005 lost key – Obd – not working ( no option to program from dump)

Cas 3+ E87 2008 spare key – eeprom dump – ok

 

 

 

F10 – key from dump – OK

F10 LCI – key from dump and isn from working key – OK

F10 LCI – key from dump and isn from DDE – OK

E60 LCI – downgrade CAS3+ and key via OBD – OK

MQB dashboard odometer correction: VVDI2 or Obdstar tools?

There are two options of MQB dashboard odometer correction: Xhorse VVDI2 and Obdstar tools (Obdstar X300M, H110 or key master, etc.)

So, how to chose and which one is better?

In details…

Both the Xhorse and Obdstar tools are confirmed to work no issues for VAG MQB.

 

VVDI2 VAG MQB Immobilizer & dashboard: confirmed!

Obdstar H110 VAG MQB dashboard: confirmed!

Obdstar X300M VAG MQB dashboard: confirmed!

obdstar-x300m-vag-mqb-dashboard

Obdstar key master VAG MQB dashboard: confirmed!

obdstar-x300-dp-vag-mqb-dashboard

But, they’re 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)

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.

Ps. Obdstar X300M and H110, at the same price, depends on your need.
