I'm really glad I took it in and found this shop (Amity Motors in Woodbridge, CT for those in the area).

As I could have predicted from some of the comments in this thread, I asked the tech how it went he just said "Well, it wasn't fun." On that note, I may leave future wheel bearing replacements to the professionals. Thanks to all for the feedback.
Honestly thats a great indy and a great price - considering the BMW bearing costs $90 plus the circlip $7 I'm sure it took him a few hours - real good shop to do it for that price and I'm in full agreement it is NOT fun especially that huge circlip
