Hi everyone todays the day we share how to properly put your f30 up on four jack stands.
Bmw e30 jack points.
Not the most ideal jacking point presumably using something like the burger adapter on the factory point would be more ideal for jacking up one side of the front or rear.
The square pads near each of the wheels are not jacking points.
Bottom line is its not good for the rear beam bushes which are often in poor condition in the first place.
The rear diff is ok but since it cost a shiny penny to replace i would stick to the frame or the jack plates.

Well the factory jacking points are always a good bet but quite often if you live in a winter prone area of the world these mounts rustrot away to unusable jacking points.
Jacking from the diff is debated.
2 x 16mm square jacking points 2 x 12mm cover panels for jacking points.
Definitely an easy job for an experienced person but can be daunting and even scary for a beginner.
For an outboard jacking point where 5 3 7 is might work thats analagous to the rear subframe bushing mounting point on an e30.
These is located in the rocker panel about a foot in front of the rear wheel.
Always be safe and make sure that you use the right tools take your time and go slow.
Ok so you bought an e30 and you bought yourself a jack and now wonder where to jack it up from.
