Honestly it is very easy to do, a lot of DIYs on this forum and you can even Youtube it. It takes about 15-20 minutes the first time you do it, if you have a lot of trouble.

E90 is a little trickier, you have to go through the wheel well.

Depends on the year. LCI can be done from the engine bay.

I would have mentioned that except http://www.bimmian.com/elements/page...LHU/LHU909.pdf says LCI requires going through the wheel, too.

I promise that's not the case. It's much easier than that. It's hard on the hands, and if you have gorilla hands, it's harder, but it can be done through the bay, and done in less than 10 minutes. Going through the wheel well is a lot of extra work.

Your car isn't an LCI.
