Xtool Pad2 Review: Successful Experience of Key Programming

auto key programmer

X100 pad2 key programmer is the updated version of Xtool X100 Pad, supporting additional functions such as headlight adjustment, OBD2 diagnosis and car suspension.

It has two versions, one with standard configuration, the other with full configuration (Xtool X100 Pad2 Pro). The only difference between them is the latter supports VW 4th & 5th generation immobilizer programming, of course, at a bit higher price, but you’ll see it’s well worth the money for those needing this function.

Med Amine Arabi, an Xtool x100 pad2 tablet key programmer (full version) user, having been using this tool for half a year, shared his review about his successful experience of it on “Car Key Programmer” forum. I post it here for your reference.

There’re two versions of x100 pad2 in the market, and I chose the full version. It is a good helper as a universal key programmer with the ability to perform obd2 diagnosis and lots of special functions.
Generally, the x100 pad 2 supports not only OBD2 engine diagnosis, which x100 pad failed to do, but also oil service light reset, mileage adjustment, EPB/DPF reset, SAC calibration and key programming (especially supporting VW 4th & 5th IMMO function— the most important one for me!)

Here’re a few photos he posted about the process of key programming with xtool pad2.
