Foxwell NT510/NT520 BMW Reviews:

Review 1:

I ended up buying a Foxwell NT510 and am happy with it.

It has an impressive range of capabilities, far more than my other ELM 327 based apps, reading a large range of modules on the car and displaying many “hidden” codes – ie codes that don’t set any dash lamp errors.

2 features that came in especially handy were the airbag test and transfer case test functions.

The airbag test confirmed that the issue with the airbag was a faulty passenger seat mat sensor. The error can’t be reset without replacement (or putting in the kluge that masks the fault and makes the module think things are OK). As the issue is limited to the sensor only and the airbag is still functional, this gives some time to decide how / when to make the fix. At least we know that the car has airbags in the event of a collision – all that will happen is the passenger bag will deploy even if the seat is empty.

More importantly, the transfer case tests showed that the fluid required change (code 54C6 was set). Once I decided to change it, this leads me to also pull the actuator motor on spec to make sure the gear wheel that has caused problems for many was OK (there were no codes that indicated it was bad). I’m glad I did as I found the gear was worn to the point it was only a matter of time until it failed to operate and the car defaulted to the limp home state when running the calibration routine (which it does on every shut down).

For these things alone, the tool has paid for itself.

2 thumbs up!

Review 2:

I like my NT510. Last weekend, I changed the fuel filter, the auto transmission filter/pan, and differential oil.

With the NT510, I was able to activate the lift fuel pump to purge the air and reset the transmission adaptation. Everything went smoothly. I also have Carly BMW but I will say the NT510 is way superior to Carly.

Review 3:

The ONLY low-cost tool I’ve ever seen that support multiple OEMs is the Foxwell NT510/520, which is £150, and allows multiple OEM-specific software packages to be purchased and loaded into the device for ~$60 each. The BMW-software for the NT510 is EXCELLENT, and provides access to not only the engine computer, but virtually ALL computers on the car – Engine, transmission, brakes, ABS, Traction Control, Air Bags, Audio, Navigation, Climate Control, Locks, Alarm, etc. etc.

In my book, the ONLY scanner to buy at the present time is the Foxwell. The initial £150 purchase includes ONE OEM-specific software package, so if you ONLY need a BMW scanner, £150 is your total price. It is an EXCELLENT scanner, and mine has already paid for itself many times over in the ~9 months I’ve owned it.

Review 4:

I can vouch for the Foxwell NT520 with BMW software, used it on both the E90 as well as a mini. Does everything it says it will.

Foxwell NT520 Porsche Customer good review:

Have just purchased the Foxwell NT520 PRO and downloaded the Porsche specific ap, and can confirm that I successfully disabled the active rear spoiler on my 997.2 (having previously installed the Flying Ducktail). Decided the lifted flying ducktail looked a bit extreme, although I didn’t notice any adverse handling in the lifted position.

Haven’t tried any other coding yet but this device saved a trip to the dealer to disable the rear spoiler lifting with PIWIS and on that basis alone paid for highly recommended.

Foxwell GT80 Mini Customer good review

Here shares the good feedback of Foxwell GT80 Mini Diagnostic Tool:

I do have a brand new Foxwell GT80 Mini. About 4 weeks later, a GT80 mini arrived. I’ve already used it to fix two cars; it comes loaded with every automobile manufacturer’s software, and every connector you could imagine … OBD I & II. It’s ruggedized and Windows 10 based.

On a friends Toyota Avalon, I found a second fault for the EVAP system when other scanners only identified one DTC. The second code helps me identify the faulty vacuum switching valve (VSV). On another friends Suzuki, the GT80 identified the faulty tire pressure sensor the caused the TPS warning light. You can even use the GT80 to register the new sensor. I tried the same test on my 335i, and you can even get the TPS battery voltage. My rear sensors will need to go soon they are down to 50% (2007 sensors … not bad).
