It is possible but will be a pig to do, you will need something to hold the valves closed while you remove the collets e.t.c, compressed air down the spark plug hole may prove to be a pain, especially if you break the "compression" seal and the valve drops :eek

You could attempt the old boy way of putting string down the cylinder bore and turning the engine over till it squashes it against the valve :hihi

See here for a bit of a guide to removing the cams http://www.pelicanparts.com/bmw/techarticles/E36-Camshaft-Removal/E36-camshaft-removal.htm
