  1. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I've got to put a power steering pump on my 2001 740IL and as you know, there's only 4 points to safely raise these cars. I'm looking for any suggestions as to how I can lift it using a floor jack and then block it with a tripod jack while I work on it. Any suggestions as to how to do this...
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I'm painting my brake calipers and when I went to do the one wheel I has using the jack that comes with the car but the jack spot is all bent and the jack doesnt properly fit in it. I tries using my 2 ton jack but it wont fit under the side skirts. I'm thinking about getting a 3 ton low profile...
  3. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hey, I have a BMW E30 318i 1989, it has done 380,000km and is in need of new suspension. I was thinking I would lower it, but its not really practical for a first car. I was wondering if there is any way to lift my car height and make it around 1ft off the ground? opinions please? Jessie,

  5. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I got the bike lift system (for 2 bikes) for my X3 and found that I am just not tall enough to use it easily -- even though its really easy (I'm 5'7"). Got a hitch finally and its been easier even though it adds length to make it harder to park in the city... My question is where should I try...

  7. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I got stuck in mud (about two feet) on Sunday. Since then, I have been trying to get the undercarriage clean. Question: - Does anyone know of a location in the Washington, DC area that uses a lift to do undercarriage cleaning? I would really appreciate anyone's help.
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Does anyone know if you can lift an X3? I'm trying to get some bigger tires to make it look better and do better when camping off road. I was thinking that just getting a little bit bigger shocks it could lift it by just a few inches. Has anyone done something like this? If so what did you...

    Front axle support jack pad: 31116752307 - $4.00 (see #4 here) Front jack pads (need two): 51718268885 - $14.75 (see #5 here) Rear jack pads (need two): 51717039760 - $14.75 (see #6 here) Looks like these part numbers apply to all years of E65/E66's.
