Foxwell NT510 scanner – a must tool for any BMW owner

So I don’t typically start threads here, but I just got this Foxwell NT510 scanner from I thought it would be good to start a thread that we can all use for questions and functionality check that others may also be wondering.


I got NT510 scanner tool and spent probably close to a solid hour and a half (more now) messing with it see what all I can make it do. I’ve found a pretty extensive list of what I can do with this thing, and I feel like I’ve just scratched the surface. I think this is a must have for any BMW owner. If nothing else it saves a diagnostic trip to the dealer, and if you like to DIY, it’s definitely a must.


Here’s a rundown of what I’ve found it can do:


-Battery registration

-Injector adjustments (You can also do adaptations if you change injectors)

-Complete function check of any system (Includes gauge hacking, individual light components, etc.)

-Read Chassis specific codes (including brief description)

-Clear trouble codes

-Code key replacement (haven’t tried this, but it is in the function menu)

-Live data

-ABS Bleeding

-Water pump control to allow you to perform a coolant flush


I know there’s probably more I’m forgetting, but this is just off the top of my head.


I can’t belive I only spent $145 and achieve so many functions.


I also talked to about the ability to code like their VAG tool. They said yes, I paid $70 to add my wife’s VW polo, as its claimed it is able to add up to 5 car brands, I tried to add GM, Porsche, VW, 60usd/ per one brand, it works.
