I have looked at the Archives for information on the retrofit of a jack into an Mcoupe. I have a few questions.

1) What year and model car are the parts from?
>>>>What year do you have? The later M coupes like my 9/99 one came with the tool holder on the left and the plain (non jack holder on the right)
Pick up the rear portion of your trunk piece and see what you have.
2) Does the trunk tray (part # 51 71 2 694 649) cover the jack?
>>>>No. That non jack cover came in my 9/99 M coupe. I replaced it with the jack holder one.
3) Does the Lug wrench fit next to the jack or in the tray with the tools?
>>>>It fits in the jack holder tray.
4) Does the Lug wrench reach the inset wheels on the rear of an Mcoupe?
>>>>Yes. I covered the end of mine with shrink tubing to prevent marring the wheels.
5) Has anyone been able to find the parts sold at retail prices? (Every dealer I have talked with is $1-$30 above retail)
>>>>I'll sell to you at retail plus shipping with payment up front:).
6) Are the Pad and wrench in the picture part of a roof rack that I don't need to worry about?
>>>>Yes.
7) Is it necessary to purchase the tool tray?
(part # 71 11 1 096 022)
>>>>You should already have this.
8) Has anyone had problems with these jacks?
>>>>I haven't. Adding the jack just gives you another option if you have a flat. Jack up the car, remove the wheel and take it someplace. Also handy for the people who do not have the capability to properly jack up there car and want to swap out snow tires. Also handy to remove a wheel and clean both sides of it. This is not for getting under the car though. Wheel chocks are the most important piece when jacking up your car, whatever method you use. BMW 's used to come with a small one. I also have the Griots tire repair kit. I've used this on my ti and it works well.
