Glad is was easy and things were not destroyed.
You will actually be glad the CEL light works so you can be notified when something is out of line.
Is the CEL on now when driving?
Now you need to know exactly what BMW specific codes are holding you up.
Once you get the PA Soft BMW Scanner 1.4.0 you will be able to read BMW specific codes and program things on the car.
I assume you have a Windows laptop? What OS are you running and is it 32 or 64 bit?
Win XP 32 bit is the easiest, but you can it working on Win 7 64 bit, just a bit more challenging.
