Part 2: Tango key programmer good or not?

 

clone Tango:

The Chinese sell genuine (OEM) and original Tango. The OEM one is from FLY and it is cheaper. FLY company made 2 versions of Tango, Item No SK80-C with poor quality which is now out of production. Then they modified the inside components and made new Tango Item No SK80-C1

The original Tango is from scorpio. At that price it won’t be a clone.

clone Tango old version (Item No: SK80-C): 

 

This is what i have. China clone…the board is not good, poor quality

But now the new Tango clone (Item No: SK80-C1) has modified PCB which is much better than old Tango clone.

original Tango: happy

 

I got mine http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/super-tango-key-programmer-with-basic-software.html
It is original and support from Scorpio is second to none. Got help on a Sunday morning from them!

 

 

Part 3: Can I buy Tango original/clone from China?

 

Scorpio Tango from a Chinese distributor: happy

Scorpio have a Chinese distributor who supplies all Chinese sellers.
It is a 100% original tool which you must register with Scorpio for updates and support.
I have one and it is a great tool. I bought mine from obdii365.com and I am very happy with it.

 

Original Tango from China: good tool;

 

The Chinese sell genuine and original Tango. It is not a clone. I bought one. I am not an idiot. I saved a little money. I get one to one support from Scorpio, even on a Sunday morning. It is a very good tool. 100% original. Best tool I ever got from China.

 

OEM Tango SK80-C1 from China: paid off already

2 days ago, customer bring Subaru Impreza 2009 with AKL, read BCM and load in Tango.
It can use with 4D, CN2, CN5, LKP02, TPX2, EH2. I choose EH2 just for test.
Program and bring to customer test. Car work at once.

I also program with Tagkey tool from FVDI to see, but it doesn’t work.

So my first experience is very good, and it paid already 3 times the price of tango clone.

ONLY no any Toyota key maker is activated in clone.

 

 

In conclusion:

 

To be a locksmith:

go for the Genuine but you have to invest more than a Tango

 

For fun:

you can try with the Clone; probably it is ok for a DIYer, if you have the luck.
