    Hi guys, where's the best point on the S3 chassis (front & rear) to position a trolley jack? I know "any strong point" will be fine, but where's best?

    Secondly, once it's up in the air, where's the best place (front & rear) to position the axle stands?

    Cheers!

    I've had difficulty in the past managing to jack it up and put the axle stands in at the same time - seems to be no room !

    iirc I used the subframe to jack it up with and then used the axle stands (with cloth's on top on them) on the jacking point of the sill.

    You mean the normal jacking points behind front wheel/in front of rear wheel?

    I was tempted to position them under the driveshafts...

    an

    Yep, standard jacking points, couldn't really find anywhere more suitable on the front.
