Trolley jack for 4C

I'm now the proud owner of a 4C and want to take the wheels off so I can clean and wax them. I had an Elise before and a very low jack that I used. The jacking points on the 4c are too far in to use my existing jack so need a solution, any suggestions?

Light weight alloy, low entry, as advertised by Machine Mart, three versions allowing for the fact that one has a steel frame so is therefore heavier?

I just googled the subject as I'd recalled some issues about twisting a carbon tub.

Congratulations on having such an issue!
If there is a disclaimer letter for it....

My local tyre indie has a trolley jack especially for lower clearance 'performance' cars but it was still too tall to fit under my 4C.
I had to drive onto two blocks of wood so there was enough clearance.

Inflatable air bag jack

How about using a inflatable air bag jack?

I'd thought about that but couldn't find any that weren't a stupid price. If any one finds a link to one, post it up please.
Cheers
