This does not sound stupid, everytime I jack up a car that I haven't jacked up before I have a micro panic attack for a few seconds while I try to figure out where Im going to put the stands etc..

One thing though, be carefull not to brake the little square doo-dads on the factory jacking points, I screwed mine up on the 335i one time because I wasnt careful. Haven't jacked up this car yet but I hope I don't repeat my mistake again.
