I bought the smaller trolley jack, 2 axles stands and universal wheel brace for Ä50.
Was well chuffed - still in the box though - must break it out today.
Plan to keep trolley jack in car (have another for the garage).

Ah Ralf! That's why one sources a nice used cardboard box to store said item.
How thick do you think we Paddies are?

Picked up one of these trolley jacks too... Recently thought about putting lowering springs on the gt but I reckon I'll just keep the trolley jack in the boot instead to keep her lowered!

Messer! But wouldn't that only lower the rear and cause you to blind oncoming traffic at night?

Luckily the GT has height adjustable headlights so you can be a considerate driver

So do most cars but not everyone is fastidious as your good self!!!

Although funnily enough, the wife has Phillips Extreme (+100% brightness) headlamps and she gets oncoming traffic flashing their lights at her often... Usually we adjust to 2 or 3 to be nice.
(Shocking I know!) Oh and it's a 97 Primera (ahem)....

FYI Groupon seems to be getting a bit of a bad reputation recently, I've no experience of them myself though but there have been a few threads on Boards lately.

This thread & the link within might be worth a look http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...p?t=2056497234
