Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series
There will be 4 points to place the factory jack in order to jack the car safely. they are rectangular in shape (the mirror image of the rectangle on the jack).
front 2 are located just behind the front wheels on the body/frame under the driver's & passenger door. follow the hinge of the front doors all the way down to where the paint transitions to the frame. look underneath and you will see the "hollow" rectangles. its about 6 inches back from the wheel arch.
rear 2 are just forward of the back wheels on the body/frame under the rear doors. they are about 8 inches forward of the wheel arch where it meets the frame. look for the "hollow" rectangles.

Please consult your owners manual. The manufacture is very specific about where to jack this car for safety reasons. If you do not have a manual, buy one and or talk to the dealer about this issue
