Lifts/Blocks for Install

SO I've decided to go FBO with my E90, already got my COBB tune installed & have a FMIC & DP's picked out. Only 1 problem, I can do the install myself except I don't have blocks to prop up the front wheels OR know of anywhere that I can borrow/rent a lift to get the car in the air. If anyone knows somewhere that I can rent/burrow a lift (I know, insurance probably won't make this realistic) or some blocks, I'd REALLY appreciate it.

PM me if you know a specific place or person I could contact -- trying to save some money by doing this myself

rhino ramps, blocks -- same difference haha, just something to get the front end in the air. I'll def let you know once I get everything, hopefully real soon before it gets hot out.... At this point I'm waiting on parts & the COBB v4 maps
