HQ Volvo VIDA DICE

Post by Clotairee » Wed Jan 17, 2018 1:27 am

I see Volvo Vida Dice High Quality on http://www.buyobdii.com/volvo-vida-d...ity-p-465.html all the time for around 65 to 80 USD . Have considered purchasing this and was wondering is anyone has on here. I know it's bootleg and my one and only worry is virus in the software. Anyone got thoughts?

They're all "bootleg" unless you purchase from a dealer at more than $1,000USD PLUS subscription costs to Vida. The software is usually OEM until you run a patch file (at 2:44 in the seller's video) that circumvents the license and allows just diagnostic functions (no software downloads).

The Dice unit is suited to cars from 1999 onwards. It doesn't suit the newer 2015 plus cars

My "bootleg" Dice and Vida has served me for 4 years and never missed a beat, however I would purchase from a site that has a valid feedback system like AliExpress rather than just the lowest possible buy price.
