I can't recall seeing a specific DIY for the throttle body, but I have read that it takes all of 10 minutes to access. It is located right on the front of the engine, follow the large air intake tube, it has a large compression ring that holds it on the throttle body. Then you remove 4 screws and a sensor and you have it off. The following DIY for a much more involved repair has portions that will show you. Ignore all the preliminary stuff that involves draining coolant, etc. Just skip to Page 4 of the PDF, then page 10 illustration 19.

No, the Angel Eyes are on the back of the light assembly and can be reached from the top by opening the hood. I have never done it but there are many threads about it on the main E63/E64 board, it helps if you do not have bigger hands!
