In sum:

The advantage of the VXDIAG VCX SE 6154A is it can be configured for BMW, Mercedes, GM and multi brands and can be used as j2534 passthru for multi OEM software.  VXDIAG support is better and it supports latest ODIS 9.1.0.


The advantage of the SVCI 6154A is that the driver connection is faster. Latest ODIS 9.1 support. S/N can be changed belonging to the original interface. Can be used for online activation, such as immo, open component protection, but for flashing too slow, data transfer often fails if the flash file is large. It is compatible with odis 8.2.0 up, it is not working properly with odis 6.2.0 or 7.2.1.
If you do VAG and require flashing function, SVCI is ok. If need a scanner for multi brands and multi functions, VCX SE is a better buy.
