The WDS is BMW software and it is categorized by the E-Model code and year. My DVD covers E38, E39, E46, E87, E90, E60, E63, E65, E83 E53, E85 and E52. For the E39 series the model is split before 09/98 and after, and specific differences on changes by date are shown for example: PDC before and after my2001 (2000-09 -> build).
There doesn't seem to be any M5 specific information, I searched on S62 and got no hits, there should be quite a lot of M5 specifics on the S62 engine electrics I believe..
The WDS also has Block diagrams, I have not seen Bentley's version but all connections are linked like a webpage so you can follow the wiring by clicking the links.
Wilsodh: I will have a go at searching for your systems, I'm sorry I don't have the time right now to do so, we're going away for the weekend now, but I will check it out when I get home again on Monday.
Oh, and if there are any model specific differences which mostly are described with engine type, country, LHD or RHD or build date they are clearly separated into different threads.
