Stick with a blow dryer if you cannot find enough intense sun for a few hours. On the other hand, I've heard some in the paint industry say its the suns UV rays that activate the self heal. I guess it depends on which manufacturer's clear BMW used on your car.
It will not damage the paintwork, almost every new car got treated this way maybe even yours. I've done it on pretty much every model and colour and it works safe just don't overheat it do it or a few second lift away and do it again if it's a very large spot.
