Oil Change advice

Hello all I'm new here and just got my M3 earlier this week. This isn't my first BMW but it is my first ///M. I was wanting to do the oil changes on this car myself. From some reading I think it uses 10W60 oil, any advice on this is appreciated. Also, I am wanting to get some sort of jack stands or somethign to the like I can use to safely raise the car up not only for oil changes but perhaps for other maintenance work in the future. Does anyone have any recommendations for this? The car sits so stinking low to the ground I"m not sure a standard 'ramp type' one would work. I used to just do the oil changes on my x3 and x5 without lifting it as it was tall enough to sneak under there without anything.
