    The usual one I get to hear is to get off my high horse after I confront a clone user....
    Then tells me his life story how he is soooo piss poor (never mind that he drove an A5) and it would be legitimate for people with little money to use clones.... makes me chuckle, then wanting to punch him.

    If I might hazard a guess having scanned the same car with two different interfaces that the dongle serial number gets encoded into a part of the scan for each control module
    Unfortunately doesn't help 'us', as in ordinary users, to find out if it's a fake.

    Nice. This one is far more obvious as a fake than the previous generation of fake HEX-V2s (none of which are functionally HEX-V2s at all).

    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.
