Putting the x3 on jack stands?

I decided to pull the trigger and have my stock M rims powder coated black. The issue is that I need to deliver the wheels. So I need to Put it on jack stands I have located the jack points and I have two questions.

1. There is a rectangle piece of metal that sticks out of the under belly plastic is this the central jacking point for the front of the car.

2. Where is the central point for the rear. The only place I could see possible is the cross frame right in front of the exhaust.

Does anyone have any thoughts or instructions on how to properly do this? Appreciate any input.
