hey Andrewwynn, thanks for tip. Any knowledge on whether the latest NT530 is the one to go for, which is one i was looking at mostly?

I've already bled through all 4 lines and all have fresh fluid coming out all corners. It was only when the pedal still kept hitting the floor after this that I discovered that this DSC bleed was also needed....

The pedal will pump up enough with successive pumps that I can get some momentary brake pressure, but not so much that I can activate the ABS on tarmac - but will definitely hop out to a nearby sandy car park and give this a go later after work!

I am a bit scared of hammering the pedal to the floor though, as keep hearing about people scoring the cylinder at the unused end of travel, and losing pressure.

also just adding the screenshots from my copy of ISTA.

You can see there is no way to progress from the screens themselves:

Foxwell NT510 Elite vs. NT 530

I was considering the 530, but I saw a comparison on the Foxwell site, and opted for the 510. I won't ever need to scan Australian cars, nor anything other than my GM cars and the X5. I bought my 510 with GM programming installed, but added the BMW programming later, when I finally acquired mine.

Where I live you often have the option of pouring out some water to get an ice patch.

Since I'm doubting that will work for you; soapy water will work maybe better than sand. Especially if you have painted road stripes or a metal manhole etc.

I've seen feedback of problems with the 530 mostly with the software and malware and haven't seen positive feedback to correct the issues so why I've still only recommended the 510/520.

510 has actual buttons but they actually can stick down. The 520 has dimple pad for controls. A little more grime resistant.

thanks again all - nice idea on the soapy water - can probably find some plastic sheeting too.

I also saw the reports of malware infections. Maybe I try a local community FB post first in case someone has one I can borrow and check it works before shelling out.

Stay away from the NT-530 as it isn't as functional as the NT-510 (I have the NT-510) Mine is loaded with BMW, Mercedes and Mini cooper and if it doesn't find the fault it is good enough to let you make one....

6. After completing the bleeding, operate the brake pedal 5 times to the limit position; bubble-free brake fluid must escape

7. Close vent valve
So the procedure says to, pump the brakes while pressure bleeder is attached, to help flush out the extra air? Wouldn't air get INTO the system once you are pressing the brake pedal adn then letting it go? OR does the 10psi from the brake bleeder overpower the desire for air to enter into the open bleeder nipple/vent valve?

PS: I should be Mike850i as my handle (assuming you too own an e31?)

Pressure bleeder has a bottle that replaces every bit of volume let in with fresh brake fluid.

So in the end I also found this Autophix 7910 unit - lots of comparison sites suggest has exactly same functionality as the Foxwell NT510Elite (with regard to ABS and DSC anyway), and it's a good deal cheaper.

Will feedback on how it goes when it arrives.
