Could anyone comment whether the WDS DVD has unique wiring info specific to the exact car model M5 vs 540i?? Is this BMW-sourced literature and for what models and years?

I wonder if they're same as what's in the Bentley E39 manuals? They are more like block diagram schematics with little or no interconnect wiring detail between modules and various electrical hardware.

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.

What is the WDS DVD?

I'm attempting to get a PDF copy of the full E39 M5 wiring diagram.

WDS is the Wiring Diagram System.

A PDF version does not exist that I am aware of - it would be HUGE.

You can go to WDS BMW Wiring Diagram System - Model Selection and access it online should you so choose.

Is there something like this that shows in detail the wire colors too?

Spend some time with the tool - it has pin outs, wire colors, wire sizes, physical locations of devices, etc. It is the complete guide to electrical wiring in the BMW.
