Jack Pads

I brought a BMW wheel jack from a BMW Dismantler cut off the locating plate that fits into the body jacking points. I then welded it to a piece of tube that sits comfortably/securely on the circular lifting pad on my trolley/floor jack. I place axel stands under the front or rear subframes.

Hope that makes sense and doesn't confuse

I purchased jack pads from amazon. They were only about 5-7 pounds each. works great and fits perfect. I keep them in my car in case I get a flat tyre and then give them to the garage to use so they dont damage my jacking points.

Thanks everyone for your recommendations. I finally decided on the pads from Burger Motorsports. They lifted the car without any damage to those plastic jack points.  They're made from aluminum, fit well, and worked perfectly with my floor jack. BTW TCon, I nearly purchased the ones you posted.
