Good tip, except that the Volvo jack I have (in my fiance's unmentionable
"mommiewagon") won't work on an Audi as Volvo jacks have a hook that attaches
to the bodywork on the car. Very solid, but equally unique.
The best and most reliable small (carry in your trunk kind) jack I have used
is a small mechanical scissors type jack. I used to carry one in a 911 I had
that came with no jack (thieved by a previous owner). I wouldn't trust a
hydraulic bottle jack that has sat and bounced in the trunk of a hot car any
more than the o.e. Audi jack (which BTW I have used on occasion with no
problems at all).
The keep the threads greased (on the Audi jack) sounds like real good advice.
When working in your own space a good floor type trolly jack and stands are
87 5kcstq (with plastic jack that worked fine last time tried...)
