BMW 335xi front wheel bearing

Anyone out there ever do a front wheel bearing on a xi? I have a vibration Im pretty sure is the front right wheeling bearing on my 335xi and Im going to do it myself. Does the bearing come as a hub assm or will I need to press in the new bearing? Any special tools? Thanks!

Does it make loud noise, like a train noise? is it louder when you take corners at high speeds?

Bearing is pretty tight in the knuckle. Easiest thing to do is remove the whole knuckle and take it to a machine shop to get a new one pressed. Something something put the bearing the right way else you need to push it out and put it in again.
