E92 Front Wheel bearings change

Chaps, I was wondering how hard it is to do the wheel bearings by yourself.

Anyone tried?

did the back ones... pita!!!
it is pretty simple in theory but vibrations and heat cycles from breaking make the parts jam together after time.
i had to remove the driveshaft and the spindle from the car and put it in a hydraulic press to get driveshaft unstuck from the spindle.

if you do not have a good sett of tools, pullers, heat and possibly hydraulic press then i donīt encourage anyone to try it.
