The engine light is basically telling you to have a dealer scan it. Oftentimes it's emission-control related and because the car can be good at compensating, you wouldn't know there was a problem otherwise.

If you can find someone with PA soft or Peake, they can do it for you.

I guess you already know you are on the wrong forum, right? Most on this forum enjoy helping others but the e46 is, most likely in many regards, very different from a 645cic. Nice car for sure, but different. Go to the correct forum and you will get better, more informed answers.
