You might be able to put a jack stand on the center lifting points but I would not go under the car that way. You also might be able to find a suspension component or something to put the stand under but BMW doesn't recommend it.

In case I haven't made it clear already, I think it is worth the one time effort to put metal, hard rubber, or wood blocks into the plastic lifting pockets. I carry some in the shallow side of the tray under the trunk floor. The cost is low regardless of how you do it and I don't see another good alternative unless you want to spend $100 for 4 of the cast aluminum pieces. They seem like the best option but I didn't want to spend $100 on them. They would also be harder to carry in the car.
