    Actually, genuine ones usually bring a good price. People do seem to understand the difference. Make sure you you post a few good pics and warrant that it's genuine.

    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.

    Received V2 today.
    However, for now I'll keep my old HEX+CAN.
    Will it have to activate on server or is it good to go from the case?
    Only reason I ask is that I've a 2019MY Superb to look at in morning where there is no internet access.

    You get a number of uses (nominally 15) before it must be registered. That said, I would plug it in and make sure the firmware in it is up-to-date before I took it and tried to use it where there is no internet access.

    If I plug it into any old VAG model will it be enough to register that way without being plugged into 2019MY model?
    Thanks again.

    It does not need to be plugged into any kind of car at all in order to be have its firmware checked (and updated if necessary) or to be registered. Please have a look at the videos here:

    Update:
    I just plugged into laptop without car and performed registration & firmware update> all OK.
    I assume that I can seamlessly move between laptops with HEX+CAN and HEX-V2 without having to reregister?
