4th choice: VVDI2 Commander Key Programmer Full Version from buyobdii
Price: $2199 If you are well off, VVDI 2 certainly the best choice. VVDI 2=VVDI options + BMW Multi Tool options+ Porsche options +J2534 (free)+ Tango (free)+ remote control generation(free)+ VAG diagnostic tool+ …more other function will be added. It’s comprehensive product, the only defect is that the price is feel-helpless for normal car owners.
In short, BMW Multi Tool is the best key programmer for BMW CAS1, CAS2, CAS3, CAS3+, CAS4 (with CAS4 adapter). VVDI2 has completely inherited all the function of Multi Tool, and it will do CAS4+ all key lost which Multi tool cannot.
