    Just behind the front wheels on the long rail that runs towards the rear of the car.

    I always place mine behind the front wheels and to avoid and slippage I sit the underside rail thingys on some pieces of soft pine timber.
    Never had a problem using this method and even when placing the car of all 4 stands its always held tight.

    I think the series 2's had them as standard, extra oil equals extra cooling and a must when towing.
    I Mig welded in the bungs to make the servicing of the transmission a non messy task.
