Lifter / Rocker arm removal & install advice needed

I'm gearing up to replace the exhaust lifters and rocker arms on my N51 equipped 07 328i.
I have a loud and constant lifter tick.

As I understand it, I will need a camshaft alignment/timing tool and cam bearing fixture/valve depressor tool.

http://shop.ktcautotools.com/product...e-installation

Both of these tools are required to do the job, correct? Is there anything else I will need?

I have a Bentley service manual, but unfortunately the camshaft removal and replacement of the rocker arms and lifters is not covered. I understand how the valve cover comes off, I'm just unsure about the camshaft, lifter and rocker arm removal and installation, including how to use the special BMW tools mentioned above.

I'm hoping someone here has done this and can provide some insight and information on this procedure. Any information is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

I'm sure at least a few people have done this...
