not really. you need to disable fuel system, relieve fuel pressure, remove fuel rail and pull bad injector out. reinstall. it's job that needs to be careful, as you are working around gasoline, but it's not that hard.
Of course, Bimmer being Bimmer might have them hidden behind firewalls and then have entire ECM re-worked with propitiatory software....

I belong to a BMW forum and found this guy had to replace the injector seals on his E46 and he posted "how to's" and pictures of working on the injectors. It might help.
