painting wheels, Jacking up the E93

I'm going to plastidip and gloss my wheels to see how the color would look before i consider buying a new set. What is the best way to jack up this car? I have two jack stands and one jack. I was thinking about jacking up the passengers front wheel, and putting a stand under it, and then the passengers rear wheel. I dont like only lifting one wheel for a long period of time, I dont like how the body of the car twists.

This jack wont reach the central jack point. Maybe I could put it on my RaceRamps and fit the jack under there on the central point? Only problem is I dont know where the central point is on this car.

You can jack under the diff in the rear or the central spot in the front.

Do not jack just one side of the car. That's a bad idea. Do the front or the rear (or both).

I think there are 6 jack point on the car. Two near the right rocker panel and two near the left rocker panel (it's a small rectangular plastic box). As mentioned above, the rear jack point is the differential and the front jack point is somewhere under the engine.

There is nothing wrong with jacking up one side of the car only.
