I just saw a few posts down someone saying that 'normal' jacks don't fit on the M3's jack points....is that true?? I was planning on picking up a regular jack tommorow from the local auto store, and was told that would be find by the place I just got my wheels (they deal with a lot of M3's etc so I thought they would know)

Anyone got a firm YES or NO on this one?

p.s If the answer is YES, i.e normal jacks don't fit........can you tell me which one I need to get!

Cheers,

Jeremy

the cup fits perfectly. Lightweight too. I had been looking for a jack, almost purchased a NASCAR type lightweight jack. Jorg Muller, told me about this one at Sears. Use it change tires for the track, small, light, has a carrying case. does a great job. cup fits perfectly in the jackpoints.

and fold it so you have enough protection so that the jack pad dose not touch the car, but not to much so that you have like the car moving over the towel.<br>

There are four jack points on the M3 one behind each front wheel and one in front of each rear wheel. They are rectangular in shape. The jack in my mothers 540i has a white head on it that plugs into these 4 jack points perfectly. I was looking around under the car and there is a lot of plastic. The side skirts wrap under the car, I was afraid that if I used a jack with a flat head on any other spot then the jack pionts I would cause damage the the plastic skirts.
