It is possible to cheat this job a bit. I did this on my E60 535xi. Since the engine is slanted, you can cut the corners on the top side of the gasket and install in two pieces. RTV both corners and reinstall. You still need a top side bar but only need to lower subframe far enough to get old gasket out and clean surfaces with cloth and a cleaning solvent. No need to disconnect half shafts or suspension. You may need to unbolt the rack and ps hoses.
