Putting a Z4 on jack Stands

Being new to a Z4 I looked under car to figure out how to put car up on jack stands so I could bleed the brakes. I found the 4 jack points easily but the problem is where can I place jack to lift car to get it on stands. With all the under body panels anything I could use as a jack point or for a jack stand is hidden. Whats the secret??

There are two jack center points under the car. See #1 and #4 in the diagram. Do not jack on the differential, but at the place where the cross braces meet. In the front you will see a black pad. However, since the car is so low, you actually have to jack on the side jack point with another jack in order to see and position a jack under the front jack point. Or get the front wheels up on some 2x6's.
