Is it really okay to jack up just the Driver's side of the car like that?

Yes. Use jack stands. 2. Basically your car will be leaning. I would not use just one jacked spot. Jack. Stand, jack again in another spot, secure then other jack stand second position.

Just did this today along with the cdv delete,both as easy as pie. Just have a container to catch the residual gas because there will be alot in the filter, or just keep the filter horizontally.

I personally would. I bought my m3 with 187k and with no records of maintenance from prior owners. So that means knock out all of the basics such as inspection 1 and 2 items just to give yourself a baseline of whats been done to the car moving forward. Like i said the fuel filter is a extremely easy DIY.
