California legal to 49 state ?

Is it possible to reprogram my E38 to be 49 state legal using BMW software? I am aware it's factory per-loaded and associated with my car's VIN.

Thanks! Looks like I don't have that black plastic piece. Also my battery is some other type and it's not vented. Looks like I'll have to stop by my local junk yard and pull some more parts :)
