Actually, you're right, you could use it across underneath the car, not just length wise. That would work even on the lotus which is an absolute pita to lift, lol.

How high is it at its lowest? Do you have a link?
https://www.vehiclelifts4home.co.uk/ is cheaper than direct.

mine is the 5000 model, but you would get away with the 3500 model as the lotus is light. The 3500 can also work with the 911 but it’s right on its weight limit.

it’s lowest height it a few inches with the rubber pads. Will go under anything

Brilliant, thanks!

Can they be used individually as well, or only as a pair?

They really look super handy, no more fighting with trolley jacks in tight spaces (y)

Don't think they'll clear under the front of the lotus, or at least it might be just tight. But that's easy to work around by shimmying some wood under the wheels.

in theory I’m sure they can be used individually

What was delivery like Keith? I’ve been waiting for them to come back in stock in costco and pick one up after a mainland trip
Free delivery with lifts4vehicles. They have a discount on at the moment.

costco were a little cheaper but I don’t have a card and they charge for postage

Got the car back last week from McMillan
- Major service
- PDK service (only done at 12 years or 120k. Car is 11 so got it done early)
- New discs and pads
- New rear spring seats

Today I began work on a big clean. Arch liner removal and clean/de-tar the arches.

That looks great! Same unit as the one in the Cayenne I think, and it badly needs updating but didn't want to change the unit itself.

Is there an Android version or whatever works with Samsung phones or Apple only?

Android?? Wash your mouth out!! Lol!!!.... this is CarPlay and android auto.

Car looks tidy!

Have you details on your lift?

It’s a quickjack, the 5000 model which lifts 2.5 tonnes.
