Did you ever get the answers to your questions? I am looking to do the same thing to my E55, and I'm having a hard time finding information on how to do it. What I'd really like to find is a shop manual that gives step by step instructions, but I've pretty much given up on that. Did you ever do the job yourself?

DIY rear subframe removal
i am planning on dropping my rear subframe over the winter, to replace the subframe bushes and also clean up and paint the subframe itself.
The process doesnt look to complex, with the exception of how to deal with the rear airbags? being DIY I dont have access to Star. I have some specific questions for anyone who has done this.
1) can you just leave the airbags inflated and attached at the top (and only disconnected at the bottom where they join the arm)
2) what other tools can be used to communicate with the airmatic system to deflate the airbag, if thats the only way?
3) can the complete airbag unit be removed inflated?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
