    ive used a trolley jack before got my mate to just lift it a bit and shoved it under lol. ive also used a scissor jack first then trolley jack. i used to have a car with same drop at front was hard work to be honest especially over bumps

    I run a GT front splitter on my M3. Its lowered 60/40. Like someone says, can you not use scissor jack then trolley jack?

    If not can you not make your own cut outs?

    i will ruin it if i try and do the cut outs as they have a small recess which is to complicated to do with a drill a scissor jack maybe the way to go

    ill trial fit one and see if i can figure it out before i spray them up

    thanks people

    You can get one of them "sport" trolley jacks from demon tweeks, there designed for lowered cars but there really expensive.

    I'd stick with the scisor jack procedure
