I have just had a major service done on my 2009 E91 LCI yesterday and was present through out the service to see every detail and it was not difficult at all. I could have done it my self. Changing engine oil and filter and changing micro filter can be done by almost any one. The biggest hurdle is getting the car up on some sort of lift or ramp or jack stands to reach under the car for oil change. I would also buy a torque wrench and filter cap wrench, both cost under 40 us dollar total, since I am not used to the force that should be applied while tightening the sump plug and the filter. The BMW mechanic used ordinary wrench, no torque.
