SRS light reset tool for 2004-2007?

I have a pesky airbag light that has been on and off for a while now on our 2004 X5 3.0i- Trying to determine if it is related to the seat sensor or the seat-belt sensor.

I have done a good bit of reading on here, and notice that the Peake SRS tool is recommended by many, but when I look at the Peake website, I see it is listed for only up to 2003 models. Does anyone know if it will work for 2004 up or know of any other reasonable reset/scan tools that will work?

It looks like either a box of donuts or a dedicated BMW (or aftermarket) tool with software is required for 2004-up BMWs. Check out this discussion for the donut approach :
