No need; the full instructions from the BMW TIS are attached. Very straight forward, except they say you need to remove the rear seats. Removing the rear seats is not necessary since you can access the shock tower once the side panel has been unfastened from all the locations except under the rear seats.

Here is a photo of the rear shock access from the rear cargo area; the side panel is still attached at one point below the rear seats, I just pulled it away from the side of the car so that I could remove/install the shock:
