Simple question, simple answer. It's garbage.

The flasher is a pirated old version of a known tool, sadly the manufacturer never really did sth. about those clones. So people keep selling that ****, made in China - otherwise the price wouldn't be possible. The fun with these clones is that they are working nicely until you fry the 1st ECU, the 2nd and many more. Thats where a good flasher makes the difference, besides a proper battery charger (50A and more)... ;)

The remap collection is worth exactly what you pay for it, why would sb. sell you these things when every legit tuners ask that much for a proper tuning? :) A good tuner will make a file specific for your ECU/SW (Version), that is what costs time and therefor money.
