Front center jacking point

similar to the Bentley rear jacking point, is there a front jacking point in the middle i can use to jack up the car? So i don't have to jack up one side at a time when trying to access the front?

I believe there's no front, central jacking point so you do have to jack up each of the sides to access the front underside.

If there is no one is telling us where it is. One of the few things that drives me crazy about my two german cars.

I have never seen a good jacking point in the front/center of the car. I'm with Keith on this one.

There is NO front jacking point, don't even try. If you try to raise it from the front where there is nothing but sheetmetal, you'll bend metal and seriously upset your steering geometry.

Best way is to raise the rear and get a jackstand under the front on that side - the chassis is stiff enough to raise the front. Then lower the rear and switch sides and do it again.
