Quality of Build

Value For Money

Ease of Use

What We Like

  • Sturdy and durable, built to last
  • Free software update for life allow you to add functions, makes and models as you go
  • Offers standard and advanced features

What We Don't Like

  • Software only allows compatibility with five vehicle brands at a time (must “delete” a make before installing another one)

The Foxwell NT520 is a handy diagnostic tool that was built specifically to help BMW owners and mechanics to monitor performance, diagnose problems and fix many different issues and functions.

This is a great tool to have, and with free software updates it works on a variety of vehicles, not just BMWs.

Since it’s priced lower than many other scanners on the market, this is a great way to work on your vehicle and save money doing it!

The NT520 is cheaper than some of the other scanners out there, but that isn’t because it isn’t as advanced.

The smaller, more compact design makes it easier to use, but you still get all the basic and advanced features you would expect from a Foxwell brand scanner.

Free upgrades for life and the ability to add or delete makes give you versatility, allowing you to get your money’s worth!
