VVDI2 VAG vs. FVDI2 VAG Full Table Comparison

Xhorse VVDI2 or Flyobd FVDI2 (not FVDI 1st generation but 2nd)? I am gonna buy one of these, just don’t know which one would suite me best. I’ll use it for VAG group clusters changing g6/touran/tiguan etc., immo adaptation, making keys, millage correction. Any advice?



VVDI2 VAG supports VAG cars: VW, Audi, Seat, Skoda, 4th immobilizer Porsche, 4th immobilizer Bentley.

It works perfect in diagnostic, 4th immobilizer, 5th immobilizer, key learn, BCM remote control, Engine control unit, Kline instrument and immobox, adapt unit, component protection, dump tool etc

FVDI2 VAG supports  VAG cars: VW, Audi, Seat, Skoda VAG-VW, Audi, Seat, Skoda 4th & 5th immobilizer,incl. 4th & 5th immobilizer AUDI A6/Q7, 4th immobilizer Porsche, 4th immobilizer Bentley.

Also, it works good in basic diagnostic, key programming/PIN codes reading, mileage correction, fault codes reading

VAG diagnostic:


VAG key programming:


Special functions for VAG:

From the charts above, FVDI2 FLY and VVDI2 Xhorse almost share the same functions.

They mainly differ in these aspects:

1 OBD read CS/PIN of MED17

2 generate OEM remote control

3 software authorization

VVDI programmer don’t have OBD it’s only for bench programming.

Good for CAS4, FRM, EZS, EWS4 and many more.

How FVDI and AVDI read write data from MED17 EDC17


1)    Only AVDI and FVDI can read out the data of MED17, EDC17 engine control unit, and calculate 6-digit Security Byte.

2)    New VW Magotan, Passat, CC engine type is MED17.5.XX,it is impossible to read out these models’ 7-digit Security Byte by only reading out data from comfort module, then it’s impossible to make new keys when all key lost and module programming.

3)    VAG 18.0 or newer version of FVDI can get 6-digit Security Byte and 5-digit login password by reading the data from MEDC17, and get 7-digit Security Byte by reading data from comfort modules.
