I believe there is a DIY in the DIY forum for replacing the clutch but changing the clutch in a BMW is pretty involved and not an average DIY.

If you're going oem with a self adjusting clutch, you'll need the clutch alignment tool that breaks down into two peices. Lots of extensions and wobble sockets will help.

just dropping the drive line and the trannie right??
I believe there are 12 bots to separate the engine to bell housing - 3 are - from that I have read and seen diagrammed - very difficult to get to. When trying to separate - I think the starter pin catches a lot of people out as well.
