Changing timing belt at home

Reality check: how difficult is it, really, to change a timing belt on a E30/B25? I have a Bentley Manual, I have a set of tools, I have a '89 325i that soon needs a new timing belt and I don't have the $700+ the dealer wants to do the job. I've read through the procedure in Bentley and it seems pretty strightforward, but I'd love to hear from anyone else ou there who may have done it themselves. Anything that can cause problems, any special tools that are helpful, degree of difficulty.

FYI: I am not an experienced mechanic, though not clueless either.
