After months of research I landed on foxwell not 510 but today I would get the 520. Doesn't code but will work with abs, airbag, transmission

After years of delay, waiting and a little research, I saw that andrewwynn got that, and copied him, with the NT520Pro. No complaints.

I also, just yesterday, bought the PA Soft 1.4 clone on eBay to allow me to program some EEPROM values, which the Foxwell will not do. Have not used that one yet.

About $150 for the first one, $12 for the second one.

I also have the Foxwell nt510 and really like it. As andrewwynn, if I was buying it today, I would go for the 520.


I also run a laptop with BMW Tools on it and have PA Soft 1.4 as well. - Admittedly, I am not exceptional with BMW Tools... but I'm figuring it out :-)
