Has anyone used the c30 VCDS programs you can get on the likes of ebay and amazon? Obviously copies but if they work well enough I'm happy
Yes, KKL 5-10 interfaces seem to be OK but are slower and do not offer full functionality on newer cars. HEX + CAN starting from 12 for older versions can be a bit of hit and miss, some work very well others produce a lot of communication errors but this can usually be solved by connecting battery charger to the car to raise voltage, sometimes they can fail after time. Seems like they do not like low voltage and you don't know how good it will be until you buy and try.

The last one I have bough after having some KKL interfaces, some failing and others dog getting hold of and destroying is this one https://www.aliexpress.com/store/pro...608.0.0.DYrMHB and it has been faultless so far. The same seller now also sell newer version which was not available when I bought mine https://www.aliexpress.com/store/pro...608.0.0.qP0SIu But obviously there is no guarantee that it will be faultless even if you buy the same version from the same seller.

Also if you are topcashback.co.uk member you can get 7.87% cashback from Aliexpress purchases but it takes about 3 months.
