Which Foxwell Tool is better for BMW F chassis diagnostic?


Foxwell NT520 pro, Foxwell NT650, Foxwell NT624, Foxwell NT644, Foxwell NT644 pro, which one is better for BMW F chassis diagnostic?

Recently we got customer feedback that Foxwell NT520 pro cannot support BMW F chassis well.Here is what they said:

1.2016 BMW X3 (F25) ser# 5UXWX7C57G0S16720: The VIN cannot be automatically read. When I enter manually the NT520 gives a ‘VIN reading failed message’.
2. 2015 BMW 328i (F30) ser# WBA3B3G50FNR85841: The VIN cannot be automatically read, however, can be entered manually. I am not able to read the battery condition (Service/ power supply battery/ evaluate state of battery). Error message “ Engine control does not recognize the intelligent battery sensor’

We confirmed it with Foxwell engineer, they said as for the hardware limits of Foxwell NT520 pro, it cannot work well with BMW F chassis.If your car is F Chassis, suggest you buy Foxwell 6 serials. Like NT650, NT624, NT644, NT644 pro.
