Fairly simple, quite a few ancilliaries in the way, but if you have a reasonable degree of knowledge/ability/confidence and an adequate toolkit it shouldn't be a problem.

Don't forget that you will need to clean out the intercooler and all the pipework from the turbo to the inlet manifold, BMW state that the oil supply pipe to the turbo must be renewed (in case it is part blocked I think) and of course you also need to change the oil and filter. If you don't do that - you will find the new turbo will go pop very quickly.

If your car has a DPF you need to check that is not bunged up as well, that could have been a contributing factor in your turbo failing if it is part blocked. There are firms such as DPFGenie that can clean them very effectively.
If in doubt, and when all else fails - read the instructions!!
