One of the reviews says it fits the jack pads on an E90. For $20, I'm going to order one and see what's up. The OEM ones go for $80-$100.
This jack works out fine. The top piece is the perfect size to fit in the jack points on my E92. The jack raises the car high enough to change the tire, no prob, with lift to spare. The foot plate is a little small, so I would put a square of lumber under there on a soft surface. It works much better if you lubricate the worm gear with synthetic grease and the other end of the works with some heavy oil.
