Seeing that an oil change is a fairly simple task, would the people at midas perform a proper job and is there anything they might not know about the procedure for an e92 oil change, something like oiling the rings?

Oil change on a BMW is not rocket science. My only worry would be #1 they don't have the prope wrench to unscrew the filter cap (using a strap wrench could encourage leaking where the filter housing meets the engine block) #2 improper tq applied to the drain plug and filter cap.
