    If you make an autoscan and mention the serial number, it is probably possible for the ross tech people to verify it being genuine (or not).

    It's not V2. It's regular hex-can clone shit.

    Throw in garbage and start a ebay case with seller.

    I guess the seller should be clear about what kind of VIN configuration youīre buying, since there are different offers from RossTech?

    Definitely Fake.

    Additional checks (just to convince yourself):

    Plug it in. Do [Options] -> [Test]. What does VCDS identify the interface as? A real HEX-V2 identifies as follows:



    Note: "Type: HEX-V2", CB and FW versions, and the last line with VBat and VIgn voltages.

    Also: Feel free to post the serial number that VCDS shows on the About screen.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Agreed.

    Throwing it away is probably not the best advice. It should be retained as evidence.

    Don't worry. Just plug in car and all will be fine.
