2015 Plus 4...

Being a but lazy and not going out to in the cold to measure but I am looking at a new jack (10% off at screw fix at the moment). They have several "low profile" ones which go from about 90 mm and lift to 360 mm. I would always use wood block to save my nice shiny underside and of course axle stand to save me!

Is 90 mm low enough to have room to get decent sized piece of wood in under jacking points?

Their alloy race jacks fit nicely under a Morgan...well recommended.

I’m sure it is

Mine isn’t a low profile one and is higher than that and I can get a block under when jacking up front and back

“Normal” profile hydraulic jacks are ok, until you need to jack the car up as a result of a picture. That is when you will need the low profile racing jacks.
Rather than wood to protect the underbody I use ice hockey pucks.

Yes you'll be fine there is plenty of room for a wooden spreader block in there.

Front of car should be ok.
For the rear see DaveW posts re a jacking beam if you want both wheels up together or better access to creep under after putting axle stands in place.
I use a beam as the axle is quite a way forward for the jack to reach.

I have the Halfords low profile jack, it works well with thick blocks
