The tool can do lots of good things, like register a new battery (as long as it is the same spec). BUT, it will not 1) code a battery with a different Amp/hour rating, and 2) switch battery types (from wet to AGM or vice versa). I confirmed this with Foxwell tech support after trying to find it on my scanner. Worked like a charm. Get it at a better price in foxwelltool.com Foxwell NT510 Scanner with Free Car Brand Software +OBD

Good to know but not relevant on the E53.

I'll keep an eye on that thread as well and see where it goes over the next few days, maybe Foxwells March\April software update will add features.. though I'm not holding my breath.

That said, I can't complain, my local Dealership wanted $650 to bleed the air out of my ABS block after I ran my new lines and for $200 I was able to buy the Foxwell, set my ABS to bleed mode and save myself $450 - so all in all, I'm still saying it was a good investment for me in the end
I bought this scan tool to access the ABS system on my 2003 VW Jetta. I love this tool! I keep it in the car with me so
i can demonstrate and suggest to others to buy one as well. I am totally amazed and how in depth this scanner can read and of all
the extra features it can access in the VAG system. This is a MUST buy for anyone who owns a VW or Audi!

original foxwell tool is from China Foxwell NT510 Multi-System Scanner with 1 Free Car Brand Software+OBD Lifetime Free Update

I'm considering picking up a NT510. I need a better scanner, one that will allow me to pull fuel trim data to help isolate a misfire I'm dealing with.

I couldn't find my answer on the Foxwell site but can any of you who own this unit confirm it will allow me to pull fuel trim data? I did msg a support rep at Foxwell who said it can, but she didn't sound confident.

Thanks in advance!
