Well, these are the questions I had planned to ask in-person instead of displaying my total newbie-ness on-line. But here goes:

I've swapped out the pads on several cars and trucks over the last twenty years, real easy to do myself. Will there be a special $800 tool, or something unusual about simply replacing the OEM pads that I can't handle myself?

Pretty straight forward. Just need to compress the piston on the front calipers to get the caliper off of the bracket. I can help you with your brake pad change if you show up early on Sat.

BMW has a specific min interval. Your warranty won't cover the pads if you cook them off before that.
