I want to change the tires of a 325i, and I have a 2-ton floor jack. How do I lift the car? Any tips? The problem is.. there are 4 rubber thing (see link below) which I think it fits the factory scissor jack. If I put the floor jack under that, will that damage the thing? or I need to get something in between to fit into that rectangle?

Just add a piece of 2x4 wood between the rubber and the floor jack, make sure you hand braked the car.

The thing in the picture are the jacking blocks and will take e trolley jack as long as the dish of the lift plate doesn't hit the sill you'll be OK

Thanks.. Does that mean that the whole rubber thing is made of steels? If so, I can just put my floor jack under on the recentagle rubber thing. I just want to confirm, not wanna do any damage. :P

or do I have to get something fit in the CENTER of the rubber like what this guy did? http://www.bmw325i.net/raise_front.shtml

Please advice..
