How about VAG COM and VAS 5054a ?

This post compares VAS-PC 5054A ODIS 4.3.3 and vagcom vcds 18.2 at these aspects including: Price, Target users, Bluetooth, Diagnostic, Recode Function, test results, Operation system, as well as Update, etc.

Target users:

For the technician who have garage: If you have garage, car repair – you will need both.

For home use, Stable vagcom 18.2 interface is enough, it covers many options, but its not better than the dealer vas.


VAS5054: Could order ODIS 4.3.3 + engineering HDD from xingobd2, if its commercially viable and you can find a dealer who will supply up dates then its superior to vcds, however you need both as vas will not provide long code definitions from 2008 platforms onwards due to svm coding.


The china clones and even the uk sellers do not admit to the key gen fix which prevents the full use of the vas 5054 for 2010 platforms, as these are cracked license managers so restricted operations and in most cases you will not be able to update the base and brand without burning out the vas 5054a head, meaning you will end up buying another.

vcds: xingobd2 update VAG 18.2 is accessible to update online!




VAS5054 is Bluetooth-enabled scanner product, VCDS 18.2 is not.

VAS5054 Bluetooth is the build-in Bluetooth, If you have old PC which is not Bluetooth supported, you need an extra Bluetooth adapter, but it is free to get from the Chinese supplier.

How the Bluetooth work? After the connection to the VAS 5054A has been set up, the Bluetooth software provides a virtual serial COM port (Bluetooth Serial Port Profile), then the Diagnostic Base System will use this COM port to communicate with the VAS 5054A. You need to specify this port when you install the diagnostic application.


Both help in diagnostic function.

Recode Function:

Some unit can be recode by VCDS 18.2, but the same unit to recode in VAS5054 odis need to be do online. and online coding account pls contact with xingobd2.

vag com 18.2 interface and VAS5054 test compared:

1.) VCDS never calibrate RVC, even if you follow instruction, and all of my friend also couldn’t calibrate, for VAS 5054A is 5 min

2.) VCDS is simpler, clear, faster in use, but for expert – VCDS not supply any special login / security code.

Most of the time VAS5054 no need this – VAS login to controller automatic, you no need to know Security Access etc.

3) For special exchange controller, VAS5054 is simple, can easy make copy of coding and all settings.

4) VCDS will help you with a problem, VAS5054 good china clone for guided functions and procedures.

5) To do coding and alignments on VW and Audi, better to have both, vag and vas-pc.

6) Can do retrofit projects with VAS-PC too. Therefore I can`t say – VCDS is the best or VAS-PC. They can`t compare complete.

Operation system:

VAS5054- Windows 7, XP(xp2/xp3)

vag: Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8
