Taking the wheels off

Any available options, without making a trip to a garage?

Sorry for the silly question, but can't you just do it yourself or don't they come with the jack and breaker bar?
I'm guessing it still has jack points though

No jack as the car is too low for a standard OEM one, yes there are reinforced points on the tub. The dealers have a set of wedges they roll the car onto which gives enough room for the arms on the lift.

Just drive it up on four blocks of wood.
Std procedure for most race cars when too low for a std trolley jack.

With the wheels up on blocks, you should easily be able to get a trolley jack under.
A low level trolley jack may even fit without blocks.

Is it complicated ?

I had a huge contraption on my GTV V6 never knew how to use and ended up using the aerosol can you can get for $10

It was very good and easy to use when I had 2 punctures
