Yes. It'll take longer but it can be done just the same.

Several people have done it already.

Thanks. Nonetheless, I think Santa may be bringing me a lift this year.

Definitely easier with a lift. I have a garage but it doesn't fit a regular lift so I got a quickjack instead

Well done!

It's not too crazy of a job once you get into it. I had to do this on my E92M.

Impressive work and documentation....thanks for sharing.
A while back, I paid $2200 labor fee to have a shop did it for mine.

This is a totally unrelated question, but Did E90s ever get carbon fiber roof?

Unfortunately they did not. The best you can get is a slicktop, like the E46M

On the F80 you can get the CF roof. Finally!

More the reason to go for E92. Just to add, instead of pulling fuse isn't it better to just disconnect the main battery? Gotta be careful while rotating that crank I guess!

How different were your bearing clearances between severely worn and relatively good ones? BE bearing seems to come in one size.

Am I looking for 0.0025 ideally for clearance? Or am I looking at 0.0027~0.0028 for maximum clearance?

The additional ones I've done have all been without removing the fuse. I don't think it's beneficial to do that.

I haven't removed the BE bearings. I will after ~100 track days and post the results.

The bearing clearances are in the DIY, I don't recall them off the top of my head

You can buy a CF roof for the E90. A few here have installed them. Don’t know the details. Maybe Lang Racing.
