Where to place jack stand on an E46?
The car has those 4 square things under the car...Where do you jack it up and where do you place the stands?

Here's the Drill:
2 Rhino or Similar Ramps
Good Floor Jack
2 or Preferably 4 Jack Stands
Jack One Front Wheel from the Side Jack Point
Place 1 Ramp under That Front Tyre w/ the Ramp FACING OUT!
Lower and Remove Jack
Slide Jack from Side of Auto towards @ Middle of Engine
Looking Carefully, One will find a Rubber Tube @ 2" in Diametre
Square the Jack Pad on The Rubber Tube
Lift the Auto sufficiently to Place Jack Stands under BOTH Sides
Jack Stand Points are the Rubber Side Jack Points
Remove Ramp and Lower Auto CAREFULLY on Jack Stands
Front is Done
Locate Differential Housing
Immediately in Front of Diff Housing is a Metal Plate formed
from the Juncture of 2 Bars running from the Auto's Sides
Place the Jack Pad on the Metal Plate and Lift the Auto
Again, utilize the Side Jacking Pads for the Jack Stands
Lower the Auto CAREFULLY onto the Jack Stands
Reverse the Procedure to take the Jack Stands Out.
