Question 330Ci lift points & jack stand locations

I have a 2002 330Ci that I purchased new -- its my first Bimmer.

I'm interested in recommendations for floor jack lifting points and jack stand placement, front & rear. I have the Bentley's Service Manual, but I didn't see anything in there on this subject.

Also, any recommendations on jack stand brands or styles would be useful.

Can anyone help?

you haev to be carefull though because if you dont get it in the right position. then the jack would not hold the car properly (T R U S T M E) just take the time to look beneath the car.

Make sure its in the center of the right pad too, and not on the edge, because if it is the jack might slip out from under the car
