Default freaking out about jacking my 15 turbo.

want to do some detailing on the wheels, etc and need to jack up my car. I have 2 jack-point stands that I purchased. My issue is jacking one side of the car at one of the designated jacking sites and having that whole side of the car come off the ground. Something in me just says that tweaking the frame of a car like that is just is not good for the car. Any advice on this subject? Jacking advice??

You should be fine, as long as you follow the owner's manual.

It's called a stiff chassis! My Gt3 did it even more so than my turbo, a beautiful thing, nothing to worry about.

And a relatively short wheelbase.
