Seems that the "special tool" required is part of a kit including a measuring device so costs $$$ - I assume only a dealer would have this tool. However I've asked my local shop if they can do it - waiting to get a response.
As previously mentioned the part ranges from $80-100 depending on your bmw dealer (I got mine for about half from the US). There are a range of special tools required depending on how professionally you want to do this. The basic removal/install tool you can get on eBay from the UK but its not cheap with the shipping (approx $70).

I was fortunate and my local indy mechanic in Canberra had all the specialist gear required. It was $440 of labour. They also did a wheel alignment afterwards (unsure if necessary).
