Post Lift it
Hey everyone, this might seem like a really stupid question but how does everyone service their car due to the low body i'm struggling to get the car high enough to get the jackstands under it and i can't drive it forward onto ramps because of the cowls at the front of the car... :( any tips/tricks?

You can always use your Hydraulic Jack, lift the car then put the Ramps under. Then put the Jack Stands to provide safety. I know the S Spoiler really sits low to the ground, which is why 90% of them out there are cracked or broken.

Use a slab of wood, put it on the jack, place under structual beam under driver/pass. footwell. Raise car, put jackstand under jackpoint. This is how I do it, and works like a charm. Be aware that you need to use a chunk of wood of fairly large size to distribute weight evenly - else you will bend/destroy the beam :)

For the rear, just jack on the transmission cradle crossbeam ;)
