      Been driving the beater diesel Jetta and the toy bike lately and soon the 911 and I can't find a good reason why I still own a new car (16 Golf S next to the red Jetta). Might ditch the Golf and not follow through with my Sportwagen order and just kick it old school.

      I like what your thinking, it's probably hard to beat the MPG that your Jetta has.

      Actually the Golf S has surprised me. On an incredibly flat trip to Syracuse and back doing 65 all the way for 600 miles I averaged 48mpg (hand calc was a bit less IIRC). It was nuts. I reset the trip odo probably about 80 miles after leaving Syracuse when I filled up. I rolled right into my shop for the 20k service, right at 20k even. Don't mind the dusty cluster.

      They run off household electricity (or you can get models that run off the car's DC electricity). Plug the motor unit in the wall and watch the magic happen.

      I just don't know that I trust lying under them. Don't know why. They are probably perfectly safe, just don't trust it. I'll stick with my 6x6s lol.

      There is a hydraulic pump that is powered electricity from the garage or the battery in your car, depending on what version you get. I find this to be a great tool and the easiest way to get the BMW off the ground and level so I can change the oil. I now look for excuses to lift the car off the ground.

      I'm in this camp, would love this in lieu of a real lift, but I'm not 100% convinced on safety. This does get the car way higher off the ground than stands, though.

      You could always throw a set of jack stands underneath if you are paranoid.

      I've been toying with getting one of these, but I've decided that my long-reach high-lift jack + 6 ton jack stands gets the car just as high with only 5 minutes of additional work (my setup can actually go two inches higher than the quick jack can). Plus, I'm not sure it will work with the side pipes on my Alfa.

      Not necessarily. My jack + stands will get the car up 23 inches. The quick jack only does 21.

      How high does the 5000 lbs go? I tried reading through the description, but didn't see anything.
