Can I change 2009 z4 break pads myself?

I heard the dealer can only do it because the brakes lock up

Check ZPOST in the e89 section under the engine trans, exhaust modification file. User name z4z4z4 just did the rears on a 2011 e89 Z4. He as a detailed description and photos. There was no description of a computer reset of the e-brake motor. He just removed the motor and turned the piston 15 turns to it start position. He seemed very happy everything is working.

I thought you could not do the rears without the software or the tools, but it seems that this method has worked as a few others have used it successfully.

Does my bum look good in this !
