I don't understand why taking off the entire caliper is easier? Accessing the 7mm alen bolts appears to be easier and more direct, and you don't have to worry about torqueing them to spec like the caliper bracket bolts, which should be properly secured as you don't want them falling off. It also looks like the front would be easier accessing the alen bolts. A lot less leverage and power should be needed for the alen bolts both front and rear as the only hold the piston and pads in their proper orientation. I am going to buy the proper tools and try this. There has got to be someone who owned an E36/46 and now owns an E9x that has done this
