Where is the central jacking point on an avant

Hi, look, at the sills, about 4 inches, oops 100mm, in from the front and rear.
There is a pressed in, arrow shape there, probably need to clean, to see them.
That's the point to put the jack on the sill lip.

Thanks for the reply - I don’t really want to jack on the sill points after I had an unpleasant jacking accident earlier this year- there must be a point under the rear differential or on the front subframe - I just don’t know where !

Ah, right.
I stick my jack under the diff unit.
At the front, I cut a couple of wood blocks with slots in them to slip over the sill lip and spread the load, between the jacking points and the jacks. Did'nt like the look of using the chassis legs, I think I tried and I thought it might damage the chassis legs, bottom arms. Or unsafe, can't remember.
I chopped up a tyre to make 2 large rubber pads for between the jack and diff as well.
