ok im looking about to get a new car jack as mine is getting old and bit screwed now. I dont do to much on my own car but i will be doing more soon!

I want a low one but have bout £100 max to spend. Must be able to take pasting as TBH ill be using it to clean the car (remove the wheels to clean all in the archs etc) and general work.

so far looked at this -

Couldnt tell you exaclty how low, but its went under every one of my cars which have all been lowered. Gets a little tight under the MK4 GSi which is down -50mm on the front but still manageable.
