Default E46 M3 MSS54 DME Error Code Comparison Table

I'm trying to create a complete list of error codes for the MSS54, as far as I know there's no complete list anywhere online yet.
If anybody has more info or tips, please post up.
The list is not complete yet, I think having cross references helps understand the code better if one program gives you a vague description, or no description at all.
Lines preceded by "???" might not be accurate. They have been pulled out of "similar" DMEs.

The first two colums are the error code # in decimal and hexadecimal. The third column tells you if that code will trigger an OBD2 relevant code. The fourth column is the description, some of these have been paraphrased. The last 4 columns are the possible variations of the codes. The variation code table is in post #3.
For example:
Code 170, AA, Minimum flow of secondary air, could have four versions: 23-Bench 1 too small; 24-Bench 2 too small; 25-both Benches too small or 09-1000 - Condition / value implausible / over-temperature

Cross-reference table. If you have one scanner, but the code is not listed, or vague, here are what different scanners define them as:

Column 1 is the error code # in decimal.
Column 2 is the error code # in hex.
Column 3 is the error as INPA would describe it.
Column 4 is the error as DIS would describe it.
Column 5 is the error as it is described in the PEAKE reader manual Table 18.

I personally love this. The only thing I wish was feasible to add would be an explanation of what would be the cause for the code, or what the threshold is that would trigger the code. That would be an insane amount of work though! haha

I was thinking of making post 1 one single explanation table with how I interpret the codes, and maybe adding OBD2 references, but the way the OBD2 codes are triggered seem more complicated. For example, BMW code 105, could trigger P0115, P0116, P0125 or P0128 depending on the conditions of the code, how fast the car warmed up, etc and vice versa. The same OBD2 code could be triggered by several different BMW codes (o2 sensor for example). I'm just not sure how to put that in a table..
Putting the thresholds in a table is even more complicated... For those, you're better off checking the A2L file... Each sensor has multiple thresholds, Voltage, flow, temperature, time, I wouldn't know where to begin. If you feel like putting them together though, go for it.
