BMW 2006 325i BRAKE FLUID QUESTION

I am about to flush my own brake fluid with a power bleeder. I am not so concerned about actually flushing the fluid. I bought some BMW DOT 4 brake fluid and I have found some great instructions from pelican parts, but I am more concerned with how to lift my car.

I dont know whether just to raise it with a jack and get under each wheel. I can borrow jack stands, but where can I put them on this car if I already have the jack in its socket by the wheel?

Do you think I need to take off each tire?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
Eric

I know there is a little how to on where to put the jack stands. I can see if I can find it, but you may be able to find it by doing a search.

There is a center jack point under the engine. There is a rear center jackpoint by using the rear cross member (or the diff housing - but NOT THE COVER). Search on "jack stands". We had a long discussion on it about 3 years ago.
