The ANCEL BM500 is a state of the art dealer level / OE (original equipment) car diagnostics tool exclusively designed for BMW, MINI & Rolls-Royce cars and is a must-have for any mechanic or DIYer’s toolbox. Tired of using different tools for diagnostics with incomplete support for BMW, MINI & Rolls-Royce models? Looking for something that won’t break the bank and is economical with a life time of updates for FREE? If so, then this scanner is the answer.

The ANCEL BM500 isn’t your ordinary code reader, it’s so much more than a code reader. Unlike the basic code readers it comes with comprehensive ALL systems diagnostics and access to “special functions”. Now, those of you who are familiar with maintaining BMW, MINI & Rolls-Royce vehicles you’ll know that there’s not much you can do in terms of repairs if you don’t have access to “special functions”, these functions are usually only available in the dealer level tools which allow the dealerships to carry out maintenance functions such as electronic parking brake retraction, throttle adaption and much more.

The BM500 comes with a whole host of maintenance functions. Hopefully we’ve whet your appetite! Read on for more information to learn why the BM500 is a must have whether you’re a BMW, MINI & Rolls-Royce specialist mechanic or a DIY BMW, MINI & Rolls-Royce owner.

Key Features

  • We are Albionshire Diagnostics (UK), an authorised UK distributor
  • This is a genuine and official model with 1 year UK warranty.
  • Brand new and unused
  • Provides dealer level  / OE (original equipment) comprehensive diagnostics (ALL systems scanning, read / clear fault codes, live data) for BMW, MINI & Rolls-Royce cars from 1976 to the present. Please note older vehicles which have the 20 pin port will require an additional 20 pin to OBD-II adapter. The vast majority of cars use the OBD-II port therefore won’t require an additional adapter.
  • Beware of ‘OBD2II’ tools claiming to offer car diagnostics, such tools are only capable of reading generic OBD2II engine and emissions related fault codes. NOT in-depth dealer level scanning of modules and manufacturer related fault codes. This is the reason why dealer level / OE tools cost thousands of pounds. 
  • The ANCEL BM500 supports key maintenance functions unlike other scanners:
    • CBS Reset
    • Oil Service Reset
    • PCM Clear Adaptions & TPS Adjustment
    • Battery coding – allows you to register a new battery after replacing the old one
    • EPB reset – allows you to release the electronic parking brake mechanism to replace the brake pads
  • Quick access and help provided via the fault code library for the busy mechanic or workshop

Please get in-touch with us if you have any queries regarding the scanner such as vehicle coverage for diagnostics and maintenance functions or any other query for that matter. At Albionshire Diagnostics we pride ourselves on great customer service, please see our Trustpilot reviews.

All Systems Diagnostics

  • Many people don’t realise not all scanners are created equally, the cheaper scanners don’t provide ALL systems scanning and at best only cover the engine module. Unlike the ANCEL BM700 scanner, which supports ALL systems scanning beyond the engine module such as CAS, DME, DDE and MANY MORE. If you’re a BMW, MINI & Rolls-Royce specialist whose used a dealer level tool before, you’ll definitely know what we’re talking about as those modules should be recognisable to you
  • Comes with FREE updates for LIFE
  • Comprehensive support for MANY BMW, MINI & Rolls-Royce vehicles
