    Default Front jacking points, and using axle stands

    Never jacked the front up before, so can anyone tell me where the front jack points are, and also ( dumb question ) where exactly do you position the axle stands?

    Jacking points are on the side sills near the front. Best place to put axle stands is under the pivot point where the lower arm meets the sub frame.

    So the guy jacks up the bmw in the middle and places the axle stands at the normal jacking points by the wheels.
