3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
There are four dedicated jack-points on my 323i. But to get under the car safely I like to put my jack-stands somewhere, but where? I am thinking of putting a piece of wood next to the floor-jack where there is plastic. I am sure you all know better than me, so let me hear, please.
I am now thinking of putting a board (plank) under the car, crosswise and put my jack-stands under that and maybe my floor-jack as well. Did anyone try that maybe? Would there be any objections to that?
yeah, i had some issue with this when i was changing the rims today...it was cold as shit, so i just took each tire off real quick (which was not quick...they were rusted on) didn't find anywhere to stick the jack stand...
I just found a lot of discussions of jack-points on the web, but mostly for the 36's.
On the 46's it seems there are some solid point just after (or forward) of the differential and one somewhere in the front. Does anyone know for sure?
