Obdstar key master VAG MQB dashboard: confirmed!
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)
Xhorse 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.
