I've recently been learning INPA and DIS as I need them to code a new key on a R53. That's the complete opposite end of the spectrum. Cheap and not supported, but does EVERYTHING.
LoL, had to chuckel a little "Cheap and not supported, but does EVERYTHING" - I liked that! I have always been a tinkerer at heart and I honestly looked at the laptop cables and all of the software, etc, etc and probably should have gone that route (I know I am going to do that now) but the Schwaben Tool just seemed to "simple" to pass up. But I guess in the end I got what I paid for and I still can't \ shouldn't complain, heck, it already saved me twice what I spent on it by not having to have the stealership open my ABS block to bleed my brakes for me after I replaced my lines.

I've only had the tool for a few weeks, but abs bleeding on my X (line failure) + clearing the airbag light on the X made it pay for itself.

They say the tool will get a big coding update March ish. Can't wait for that, we did a few little things on a buds 335 with it as it currently sits, can't wait to be able to do more.

Hmm I was looking at it too, and wondering if the $4500 price (Canadian dollar stinks vs the ameri-buck!) was worth it, I have a couple scan tools and the Romanian cable and software, so I am trying to justify another scan tool , if I can do coding with it, I will be really happy! recode a guage cluster or GM3 module, and I'm sold!!!!

Share a cheaper place to buy the same tool but orange color named as Foxwell.
Foxwell and Schwaben are 100% the same but the black and grey color. I will explain... Foxwell is the maker of the software and producer of the tool. So, Schwaben and ECS gets their support from Foxwell. I bought the identical scan tools, Foxwell NT510 40USD cheaper than ECS (at FoxWellTool - Foxwell Diagnostic Tool Online Shop) than at ECS. Don't get me wrong I support them but I get my support directly from Foxwell. Best tool ever, IT CAN do everything. Found my "SES" light from a dirty solenoid. Cleaned it (not replaced) and it fixed the problem....that right there saved me $140. Damn near paid for itself on the first day.

In a word, certainly is a good tool that seems to be pretty reliable and easier to use than a PC based system. I carry mine in my car and you just plug it up and start checking systems out.

I have tried several different scanners. Every time I used them I was back to the directions. I bought the Schwaben scanner about 6 months ago. It is the first one I've had that is intuitive. For real time info I use Dashcommand on my iPad which is also very easy to use.

Foxwell NT510 is freakin' awesome on the VW/Audi cars! The number of things it can check and adjust is pretty amazing.
It's easy to use, and you really don't need an instruction manual. I frankly expected less, but waspleasantly surprised by a very comprehensive menu.
