We wrote a good explanation of all the tools here:
- Explanations of INPA, EDIABAS, NCS Expert, DIS, EasyDIS, Progman, & other BMW factory & dealer programming, coding, and diagnostic software & cable interfaces (1)

You E46 guys have a specific sister thread on the tools also (it's referenced in that thread above if you don't find it elsewise).

For the E39, we listed the modules that require a reset. They should be similar for the E46, I would think:
- How to better understand your 17-character BMW VIN (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) and online BMW VIN decoders (0) (1) (2) (3) (4) & what is the definitive list of electronic computer modules that need recoding once replaced (1)
