You can do it man!!! You managed to join the Air Force...coilovers aren't a hard job at all and doing it yourself will grow your brain.

Here's a DIY. You can use a 1/4" adaptor to spread the knuckle grabbing the strut bottom in front...just slip it in and rotate 45*. http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=763316

Also, this is the 1M forum, and while the procedure to change suspension is the same you might get more views in the 135i forum.

Actually, I'll also be doing this soon, so any helpful pointers on the REAR would be much appreciated! I have R+R'd the fronts a couple times, but never touched the rear.
