Just seems to me that GM is giving the EU the Cocoa Kielbasa .Maybe the Right to Repair Law is more of a joke there than here.
I say whenever possible , bypass the OE extortionists and the J-box hoops, and Recycle USED Electronic modules and do programmable module installations with a Chinaman tool

Regarding help desk, of course I didn't tell them about the VPN, and they "adviced" me to purchase the only option available, "35 Euros for 2 Hours"

Also, the help desk didn't have any answer to this:

"what's the difference between:
- Diagnostic Software - Level 1 TIS (Diagnostic Software)
and
- GDS2 (Global Diagnostic System - Global Diagnostic Package) - Level 1 TIS (GDS2 Global Diagnostic Package)

And also between:
- SPS Programming Software (from 01.05.2018) SPS Programming Software
and
- Service Information, Programming Software (TIS) - Level 1 "

Maybe somebody here can clarify this.
Not sure what they are calling "Diagnostic Software" TIS is Technical Information System which includes service information and some diagnostic software that can be used with Tech 2 on a PC.
GDS2 is their Scan tool software that is installed on a PC and uses MDI or MDI2 as an interface.
SPS is Service Programming System,which is where you find module software.
"Level 1" sounds like how your access is limited.no idea if Level 1 is highest(dealer level) or lowest
There is specific software for every region due to differences in emissions laws.Our emissions are stricter in North America,so you don't want our software.

Regarding emissions, only the engine software could be different.
From your knowledge, is GDS2 available offline also? Could be found some cracked version on torrents or somewhere?

GDS2 is only possible online.As far as any cracked versions,I don't know.I also don't know if GDS2 will work for your car,it doesn't cover all GM vehicles(not backwards compatible).In North America GDS2 coverage started with some models in 2010,and as of 2014 covers all current models.Your best bet is to look at some Euro forums for your best info.

here is a link to what vehicles are supported with GDS2,I see no Opels
