There are 4 designated mounting points for the jack. Normally where the jack holes should have been, feel underneath on the chassis directly below the jack holes. You should be able to find 4 rubber pads. Use these 4 points for using your hydralic jack..

the BMW jack is okay. In fact I like it other than the first time I used it and almost got my skull crushed in when the car dropped. But you just got know how to use it well. I was also wondering when I get my M3 sideskirts what will i do to jack up my car

The rubber pads may be gone as the can fall off..use this reinforced part of the chassis..

hydrolic jacks are always the best to use.

o yea and compared to the factory domestic jacks ( the ones that come ford/chevy, etc) the bmw ones are amazing

jesus...how often are you planning on jacking up your car?

i've only jacked up once and that was for fun. Once when I got a flat I was able to drive a few miles thru the city to a tire shop where they lifted my car on a platform and change my tire.

Just get jacks that the E46 use.....if you know what I mean and chances are you'll never use it....
