yes, its acutally quite easy. I believe the plugs are a terrible design and actually used to use a bolt on my e46. I think the plug is actually a softer (aluminum ?) that allows it to strip first before damaging the pan. That being said, it shouldn't happen if care is taken; if the dealer is the only one changing the oil, they shouldn't be torquing that plug down so tight.
