I do not do any Exx Chassis stuff, so I can't tell you where to go to find things, but for coding you need INPA, NCS Expert (coding applications), SP-Daten (coding data files) and a USB OBD K+DCAN Cable Interface.

For Diagnosis, you need ISTA/D with ICOM A-B-C Interface, same as Fxx Chassis, although there may be some things you can do in INPA and Tool32 with the USB OBD K+DCAN Cable Interface.

For flashing modules, you will need WinKFP or ISTA/P, the latter of which is also used for Fxx Chassis.
