    In the owners manual, I can see a few places to use a scissor jack in the event of a puncture.

    What about using a trolley jack and axle stands? Photos would be great

    In my old car, it was a pain as the stands had to go into roughly the same place as the jack

    For jacking points for a trolley jack. In the middle of the car at the front & back is a looped bit of sturdy metal. This is what is used for the trolley jack.
    For axle stands I put them on engine chassis arm legs for the front.
    For the rear I couldn't lift the car high enough with my jack to find a good place to put axle stands.

    Great!

    I tried jacking up the front today, but couldn't find any sturdy places to put the stands.

    Any chance you can take a photo of where you jack her up (I know about the V sections front and back from the owners manual) and where you put the stands, Adam?

    This is the best picture I have.
    You can see the top of the axle stand just above the brake disk. [​IMG]
