New Ignition Wire Set on 1996 BMW 318ti

I thought it would be easy to install, but realized that wires have to go underneith block, up and around to ignition coil. (1) Is this purchase and process over-rated? (2) Are their any recommendations with regards to this novice plugging in these spark-plug wires himself? (3) Is it inevitable that I use a jack (with posts) to install this product? Yeah; I'm one of those but am determined to learn. Thanks for your help.

Yes......make sure you properly support your 3 series with jack stands......

& give a go........just follow the routing of the old wires......
