Not that hard. I am no mechanic. You just remove the existing rivets, carefully unlock the clips and slide the existing flares out. Reverse the process for installation. You will need to buy the rivets for the installation at your dealer or local store. They are inexpensive. Manual rivet gun is recommended.
Look for the DIY on BMW forums. I recall following one, however I do not have the link anymore.
