E92 on 4 Ramps for Maintenance?

I was wondering if anyone has put their car up on 4 ramps to perform Maintenance? If so what was your process? Obviously the car can't drive up on all 4 at once due to clearance issues. My thought was to drive up on the front 2 and then jack the back up one side at a time and place the second ramps under each rear tires. I'd do both at once, but I'm not sure on a central jack point in the rear of an xDrive. I'm replacing the fluid in my transmission and transfer case so I need the car level. Jack stands just don't seem secure enough for me, so I'm going this route instead.

rear central jack point is on differential. Using 4 ramps will be fine.

I do this routinely during service - works quite well. You can drive-on the front or back two, then use individual or central jack points and slide in the remaining two ramps. I also like to position them where the ramp sections are facing opposite directions front to rear - this lessons the chance of inadvertently rolling off. Good luck!
