For the most part, the E46 just needs flap top jack stands.

I'm thinking:
2" square, .25" wall aluminum tube outer, 1.5" square bar that slips inside the inner, drilled holes through both for a pin for setting the height, an 8"x8" .25" thick plate for the bottom and a 4"x4" .25" plate for the top pad.

Probably about 15 minutes of drilling holes and 45 minutes of welding per. Could probably get quicker with practice. No painting or rust prevention required being that its all 6061.

About $42 in materials and fasteners per, leaving about $17.99 for miles labor, and then it's a $59.99 6061 aluminum jack stand that will be very beefy.
I'll wait for the $10 harbor freight special.
