How hard is it to install the software for other makes onto an NT510? Just curious, I've been eyeing other cars lately and I'm curious how easy the software download is.

just follow their instructions

It only took a few minutes to download the BMW programming (I bought my NT510 with GM programming because I needed that first).

I bought it on AMAZON, the seller was Foxwell thru "Obdzon". I registered it thru http://foxwelltech.us/ , as shown in the users guide.


Users Guide (with "Registration & updates"): https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/81u5y+gQocL.pdf


Users Manual :https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/B1ewKaUuSyS.pdf


To register, I took out the SD card, put it in the card reader, and followed the steps given on the website.

To buy the BMW program, I simply signed in again and followed the steps outlined there. When I was ready to purchase, I removed the SD card and put it in the furnished reader, inserted it into my PC, and clicked away (of course after using PayPal, for secure payment). It loaded right away.

3/10 difficulty. You use a web browser to load into the micro SD card.

R/R the fuel filter on my 02 E53 and replaced the rubber portion of the vacuum hose that attaches to the filter. This had deteriorated to the point that the car was throwing intermittent codes related to a vacuum problem.

I was going to replace the entire line, since it is only about 24 inches long, but accessing the other end of this line requires dropping another large protective cover and looked to be a major PITA to do in my driveway. I did get this particular cover down a little and was able to get a pound or two of dirt and debris out of it, behind the wheel well.

My 4.6 transplant long block motor also arrived from Germany today.

not exactly what most of you guys would do, but...

I intentionally disabled my sunroof by removing Fuse 58 from the fusebox. I've read of so many pano roof/sunroof problems on this and two other X5 forums, I wasn't going to even try opening mine.

I was told it was in working order by the previous owner/restorer, but I don't want to chance fate (if it can break, it probably will). And, living in Texas, I'd prefer A/C to open air anyway. Never liked open windows, convertibles, T-tops, preferring to use A/C or heater as needed.

I can't tell you of how many times I've ridden in cars with leaking tops, and/or sunroofs, and I just say no to it here and now (before the wife just reaches over to try it out!). She also opens failing/loose car windows a dozen times after I tell her to wait until I fix it, inevitably breaking it a hundred miles from home, in inclement weather. Not chancing the sunroof here. I might even eventually code out the passenger window control, too.

I've been meaning to pull the fuse for the same reason. Mine still moves but not all the way. I am afraid if I move it again that I will have to fix it. Fuse 58 you say?

The e53 only has child-proofing on the rear doors. Though my wife is 1.5 decades younger than I, and often displays child-like tendencies, she probably would raise hell if I made her ride (confined) in the rear seats.

However, I did find that F24 controls the window module for the passenger door. I might pull that fuse!

Yep. It is listed as such on the actual fusebox labeling, and on fusecheck.com https://fusecheck.com/bmw/bmw-x5-e53...6-fuse-diagram
