Is it possible to make a ngff cable out of mpcie one? Bought wrong one and I need to replace it, don't want to waste 25$ yet. Any ideas? 😀

The effort, equipment and parts required to rework the mPCIe cable to makes a  NGFF one makes the $25 replacement cost a bargain. Just purchase the NGFF cable and consider donating the mPCIe one:  https://egpu.io/forums/component-donation/

There won't be any compatible issues tho? I mean, exp docks are for all cables right?

I'd advise asking the vendor to give te NGFF cable for you version of EXP GDC adapter. There is a version 8.x and 9.x of EXP GDC, with no detail on whether the NGFF cable is the same for both. Certain, 9.x looks different to 8.x as seen at https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/exp-gdc-beast-v9-0b-just-arrived/
