WANTED car remote programmer

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I currently have rw4 plus with m-box and the SRP but I want to start programming more remotes as I'm loseing money every time I turn them away!! I know I should get an MVP or wait for then new smart pro but I'm looking for a cheaper option in. ive been looking at skp1000 and lonsdor k518ise and such like. Anyone tell me from there own experience what these Chinese machines are like and also where do you get the blanks from for these machines? Can you use the key DIY blanks with these machines?or shall I just save the penny's and wait for the smart pro

for good remote coverage mvp is probably your cheapest viable option .


chinese kits have their uses , but also their frustrations , not all claimed coverage will work and failures on some euro makes are common , each has its strengths and weaknesses , most of these china tools are good token savers when used with the likes of mvp , but not reliable as your only unit to rely upon. face it if they was advanced diag etc would all be out of business as we would all buy the cheap china machine and not need their kit.


the first thing id advise doing is to work out which remote coverage you want and need , then match the right machine to your needs

i have one of the best on the market and i can get back up if car wont start if u use cheap clone and blow bcm or car dont start your going to get big hefty bill my advice is save up and get ad100 and add as you go if u use mvp pro paying 25 for each time you do a car your not going to make money you think  as people are doing car key remotes for 65 and 70 pounds to reinvest you need to charge at least double up i have been doing for 3 years and spent well over 60000 and not even got half of what i need ,


once you start to invest it don't stop and every person will gladly help you spend with offers and deals .


you need adequate  insurance if you have a no start as some will be main dealer only and if guys of road for 14 days you need insurance 


i'm not trying to scare you but its happens even to people doing for years

Buying or owning a genuine tool ie ad100pro or mvp ,allows you access to the forums and videos of the programming methods of many popular vehicles plus IQ ,all valuable knowledge and reference guides to refresh yourself again & again .As they say ,you get what you pay for and cheap ,you buy twice .

One on our website at a great price, comes with the Smart Dongle and Smart Aerial, in mint condition,

12 months warranty and tech support.

If you want to buy in January I will drop the price to £2100 + vat and add one months unlimited use.




Let me know
