Where can you use jackstands with the insight? I need to change the oil for the first time.

i have found that i dont need to jack up the car to do an oil change. i can reach all the bolts for the front aero cover by lying down in front of the car. that gives me access to the filter. for the drain plug, i can reach it by going over the top and down the back face of the engine. i made a small trough out of a 6" x 10" piece of aluminum, which i lay sideways on the rear aero cover. this lets the oil drain into a small plastic tray placed under the center opening of the aero cover aft of the engine.

much easier done than said, once i figured it all out.
