I used a 2ft breaker bar, with a pipe slipped over it that made it a 4.5 ft breaker bar, and I was unable to break mine loose. This was not on a BMW, but a 1.6l Mazda Miata, in the interest of full disclosure.
I used the method in the video, but please see the critical notes about that process in the post above.
You can fight it like hell, or be done in a few seconds. Your choice.
