Garage List
Just from looking at Yorgi's DIY on the 6 series, I have to believe that the procedure for the F10 is similar. The F10 uses the same single-piston sliding caliper design. I haven't attempted this on the F10 as the brakes here are covered under maintenance warranty. I have changed the brakes on many different cars, and for the most part the operation is basically the same. He lays out the BMW specific idiosyncrasies such as not greasing the guide pins, but if you have done this on other cars before, then you already have all the tools necessary, there are no special tools required. What is required is the torque settings, especially if you are going to change the rotors. Getting this info can be slightly tricky, since the model is so new, I don't think the Bentley manual is out yet, which would solve a lot of guessing.

Front looks the same to me:


Rears looks similar bit looks like their are no more clips:
