Rubber Lift Points

I''m fairly new here, but have searched the forum a bit and can't find an answer. I have a 2010 E90. Is the car supposed to come with the rubber lift point inserts from the factory? Or do we have to get them ourselves and install them? My car has the front center rubber lift point insert, but not in any of the side rails. The rails just have the empty recessed spots to take rubber inserts. I found this when I finally went to do some work on the car after the dealer service ran out. Ended up using small pine blocks in the lift point recesses to cushion the jack stands.

It does not come with them. Use hockey pucks, or cut some 2X4 lumber or buy them from aftermarket like ESC Tuning.

I use blocks of wood - find lift points etc. HERE - it's in there....

I don't think the OP is referring to a jack pad adapter.

I think he's referring to the actual jack pads.

http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/Site..._Pad/ES129057/

It's common for these to be torn up or torn off due to normal (or not normal) driving.

Mine are all crushed but I don't really care because I never use the insert at all. I have access to lifts

You don't really need them. They are for tire changes/the oem jack. If I want to use a normal hydraulic floor jack to get the car in the air, I jack from either of the central jacking points or from the unibody frame.

I acquired a CPO E90 sedan in Dec. 2013, just got an E46 scissor jack and wish to use it for either easier installation of snow chain substitutes (snow socks) or to get better access to tire punctures in order to plug them, reinflate and get back on the road.

So I am wondering what I need to do, in order to use the E46 scissor jack without damage to my E90...
  1. get a jack pad, in case any of them are crushed already http://***91;*]http://www.ecstuning.com/S..._Pad/ES129057/ , or
  2. get a jack pad adapter http://www.ecstuning.com/ES251251/

Suggestions requested.

Where are the central jacking points or points on the unibody frame which are safe to jack from? Anyone got a photo of the underside, showing either/both?
