    Can anyone tell me where is the safest place is to use a trolley jack??

    I have the kit on so ideally needs to be coming from the from and the back rather than the sides.

    Thanks

    The jacking points still mate, just take the jack cover off ur side skirts and continue as normal

    Jacking points can get damaged. if your jack is low enough the subframe (front) might be a better idea (have to look for the rear).
    Anyway a jack is just to lift your car so use axle stands if you want to do something underneath the car.

    If you have any doubt, take a tip from Briskoda like I did. My jacking points are fine. I find otherwise a small jack tends to damage them.
