    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...

    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...
