Yep, special tool required. Or use jubilee type clips.
You want a set of “ear clip pliers” I think theyre called.
I think they’re actually EARLESS clip pliers. When I fitted my airbox back in the day I didn’t use genuine BMW clips, I used a universal type thing like a CV boot clip, which used the ear type. Sorry for the confusion!
