Pretty much. I'll check into the differences between the diagnostic and DSC systems. Thanks for the info...

Also, I am not sure if the MS45.1 DME will play nice with the earlier version of the DSC module that came with the 01 cars. There may be other issues since BMW switched from the ZCS system to the FA system between 2001 and 2002 (both are ways how the car identifies itself to the various diagnostics tools out there)
edit It looks like both cars run the same Teves MK 60 DSC III system. Should be good there. /edit
Maybe I'll just do the whole freaking wiring harness
