FVDI 2018 Review: Valuable, Easy to Use, OBD Works

Free download FVDI 2018 software for mileage change and auto key programming:!KRBzVIrD!uE0ZGjYAbTv0sEZPQjLN0jejex_yI0IF9R3Wad21f7g

Tested 100% FVDI 2018 interface:

FVDI 2018 reviews:
Functional, good price, easy to use:

This scanner does exactly what I expect it to do. I can get the fault code myself, search for them on the internet and find an explanation of the code to determine if I can fix it myself or fix it by a professional.
I use it to read and erase the fault code, works well. This is a good diagnostic tool that save me a lot of time and money, to check for vehicle failures and pay for repairs.
Reasonable price, good quality and easy to use. That’s why I purchase it.

Great for most makes:
Tried and tested I swapped a dash over real easy. I think is a great bit of kit for mileage correction key coding, injector coding, cluster change, radio decoding infact great for most anything on just about any make.

IMMO 4 and 5 key programming working:
I’ve tested on 2012 Scirocco 2.0 TSi and 2014 Audi A5 2.0T.
Overall it is good value for money. Not as good as OBDSTAR X300 DP PLUS pad for keys and odometer but has many better functions like programming and calibrations.

BMW and VAG key done by OBD:
Two more jobs just done. 2010 BMW key couple mins obd and VW crafter airbag crash cleared OBD in CPL minutes wow!!!

Passat B7 2013 mileage:
Just get FVDI 2018,done a Passat B7 2013 mileage re-calibrate by ODB – successfully

Works for AUDI A4 2005 mileage:
This FVDI 2018 can configure the mileage of AUDI A4 2005, can not configure the mileage of AUDI A6 2018.

VVDI2 enabled:
the FVDI 2018 has the softdog components integrated on a new pcb so there is no separate softdog anymore. the software is the same as 2015 FVDI but with some Xhorse VVDI2 programmer options added:

VVDI2-VAG 1.2.2 for Volkswagen, Audi, Seat,Skoda
VVDI2-BMW 1.2.2 for BMW, Mini)

What’s the difference between FVDI and FDVI FLY


For FVDI tools, what exactly is the difference between FVDI ABRITES Commander and FDVI FLY?Is one of them a clone or are they both clones & if so what is the original called. Look here if you don’t want to waste your money.

FVDI or FDVI Flyobd:

Fvdi Fly is clone of AVDI (abrites) original tool.
Fvdi is clone of Fvdi Fly.
Fvdiclones are very limited but can be useful.

I used both of them and I never noticed any difference in functionality. I compared pcb and both are same, pcb version v4.1, same components

I have fvdi not from fly
And I have trouble with k-line – it not work.

I haven’t use fly but I have used fvdi obd and is working good for its price.
I heard that fly is clone of original and fvdi others is clone of fly ,that means is clone of clone

I have an FVDI 2014 non fly and it works on K-Line and Can bus fine, not all features of each software work but it’s still a great piece of kit for the cash.

Don’t go with clone of fly fvdi. Fly FVDI is clone from And other people clones Fly FVDI again, so clone from clone. I had FVDI 2015 Mercedes and a nice guy from ther forum cracked it to all brands. I bought genuine AVDI in cause of the online functions and sold my Fly FVDI 2015 cracked to a mate of me. To buy a FVDI from a shop always risky, always russian roulette. There are different hardware revisions.

Do not buy FVDI. This version Clone of Clone. not stable, not working good. You Need FLY FVDI, Working good, and stable!

Depending on the cars that you work on.
If it is mostly vag. vvdi or vvdi2.
For Bmw multitool, or also vvdi2.

Those are from xhorse and come with updates.

Some are happy with there fvdi, but i here many complains, when they need support or repair.

Tested fvdi from fly is work ok not full work but with a same bugs and other clone is work a same.
clone is clone fly or others a same craps, better is original Avdi but price …

Do not buy FVDI 2.. whey don’t post which new functions it have.and what exact it can do.
they promised update fro free in real.because updates never comes out.
keep your money or better by an tool vvdi2 or vvdi bga mercedes tool.
Vvdi2 brings free updates.a tool works good.
wait until some people post what fvdi2 can really do.
If you looking only for VAG + BMW , then VVDI2 and VVDI prog is way to go. No need any other tool.90% of VAG and BMW can be done by OBD in VVDI2.

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

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

Flyobd FVDI2 review:

I bought Flyobd FVDI generation 2 for VAG group vehicles. The only improvement they did was on vag group and that improvement did affect other software. The rest = 0 or bad.

Hmm… Maybe i can also say nothing new on on VAG. it’s v24 also. Only this time it can process info over the Internet and it function same as avdi v24 but does not support JC cluster and cannot read immo data for Audi from 2009 up , and also when trying to get cs for key coding after processing data over internet it shows 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
What i did on VAG vehicles with this Fvdi2 vag commander:

– Brand/Model of car : VW Caravelle

After read pin, eeprom content in RB4 faulty. Car don’t recognized original key. Solved by write content saved after first read.

– Brand/Model of car :Seat Leon 1PA
– Year of car : 2011
