Front drive shaft help

Hey guys, hoping you can help me out. I am replacing the front drive shaft on an '01 325xi. The Bentley manual is zero help on this matter BTW. Anyway, I can not get any of the bolts to break free from the front flange. It's a pretty tight space to work in and I don't think an impact wrench would even fit in there. I sprayed it with penetrating oil last night and let it sit hoping it would be easier today. Any tips on how to get to these and get them out?

Also... I don't think the bolts are actually seized... just a fairly high torque and tight spot to get to makes for very difficult time removing.
