jacking up an alfa 147?

Hi guys

Sounds like a very basic question...

But if I wanted to have both front wheels off the ground at the same time, is there a way of jacking up the front end of the car (i assume in the middle in line with the front grille under the car?)

I remember tyre places jacking up my old car with 3 trolley jacks (2 on rear sills and one at the front)

I'll be using axle stands, and I wont be under the car.

Thanks guys

Use two jacks

Or, jack one side, support it with an axle stand, then jack the other and support it. If you do it this way, be very careful, as the lifting movement can induce a sideways movement.
