1. 1.5ton racing jack that's 22" in length (3.5" clearance)

2. 1.5ton racing jack that's 27" in length (3.5" clearance)

3. 3ton steel jack that's 29" in length, but also its the lowest profile at 2-7/8"

if I want to get a jack and 4 jack stands for my oil change DIY, would any of the above 3 mentioned jacks reach the center front and back jack points on the M3? I have a bone stock E93 convertible on stock OEM 19inch wheels

any input is appreciated

The 2 smaller alu jacks will not reach for sure, I have one of them. I also doubt the steel one will. If you search on amazon, there are a couple of more expensive and considerably longer/lower steel jacks which I believe will do the trick.
