They're a very complex car, so good luck and you can always shed any tears on Bimmer if you get completely stuck. Many people do.

Put it this way, if you had to replace the sunroof, would you do it yourself? Gear box? Air Conditioner? Brake hydraulics system?, cv joints? Central locking system? Parking sensors. All I can say is good luck, because all these jobs I mention will undo most people's efforts, including their bank accounts.

I agree with you on the more technical aspects of the car should not be tickered by the novice home DIY person. However, this is the forum where people share the work they have done and if confident one can tackle it themselves.
