Cames across these ramps which look quite good and would be even better it they done a low entry version,anyone tried or got a pair of these?

Low entry version definitely would be cool, I've got some that look pretty much exactly like that but don't have the Jack and it's impossible to get my car on or off them without taking the front bumper off.

I tried whilst I've got the spare black front bumper on and it snapped one of the lugs and pulled the bumper off coming down

You could try these if you had the room to store them.

You can buy extensions for the standard ramps, although I have seen some mini scissor style lifts that just go under the wheels instead of lifting the whole car.

My uncle has one of the scissor lifts that you can slide under the car. It was spot on, past its best now though.

I don't know if I would trust getting under those looks just as dodgy as having the car on axle stands just 100 quid more expensive

Agree, wouldn't catch me under them, look cheap and nasty.

Bought a decent quality low profile Jack, big and durable. 120. Axle stands. Job done for less and safer.

Same^^^ Much easier, plus the ramps aren't in the way. What jobs can you do on those ramps anyway? seeing as you can't take the wheels off.

Those ramps would be handy to get the car onto some axle stands, but as said a decent jack will do the same job and is easier to use.

Interesting prospect. Not seen them before. Looks like a good idea.
