It seems that way. Not only BMW dealers can do the job. Any garage with Bosch obd management tools can retract the brakes electronically and thus do the changes. This appareil costs around 4000 euro and comes with an annual update requirementt of a couple of hundred. So it is not worth it for just one or two cars.
I would love to find a cheaper solution and do it myself, until now without succes. Rear brake indicator at 70k kms indicate still 11k to go, time is running out.
