Almost. The OS update disks work in the non iDrive cars, plus it also works in the E65/E66 iDrive cars (only). It does not work in any of the other iDrive cars.

I assume the E46 as a MKIV computer? If so, there are no risks really, just benefits. Sometimes, an upgrade can kick the navigation computer into "Euro" mode, which means that the "Emergency" menu option goes away, the Accept screen is disabled, short distances are in yards instead of feet, and you gain the Route Magnet option. The reason I do not call Euro mode a risk, is because that is actually the preferred setup for almost everyone who has a nav system.
