Was your mate able to read the DSC module with his laptop connected? Do you know what software he was using? If your e39 has the underhood diagnostic plug you must use it, not the underdash connector, to read all modules.
The DSC light is also characteristic of having a used but uncoded DSC module installed.

Sounds like it could be the steering angle or yaw rate accelerometer. I wasn't aware there was an underhood diagnostic plug under the hood as well. Looks like it's a trip to the garage. Most garages where I live in the UK are quoting 60 just to read the codes, looks like I will have to pay up!
