E90 Front Jack Point - where is it???
2 Attachment(s)
I'm going to attempt to change the oil myself this weekend as BMW is being *thmbsdwn* not offering their free oil change until the car says it wants one (in 18,000kms yeah right!).

I have searched everywhere, but there doesn't seem to be a consensus on how to jack up the front end properly. Even the E46 guys seem to have problems (

I've come accross these two pictures- it seems as if the rectangular block's sole purpose is as a jack point...can anyone confirm this before I crush the whole beam in?

You won't crush that beam. That appears to be a jacking point. It should be in the owners manual.

It appears that you can jack on the front subframe.

But instead why aren't you jacking each side at a time? and putting it on jackstands?

Its safer, and you won't have the jack in the way trying to remove the drain plug.
