    I have the Direct Lift out of Temecula CA. Had it for years with no issues. Back my Panteras into it so the garage door slides over the low hood. Works real nice. Takes a little bit of skill, but I hold a small mirror out the window to watch the rear and front tire placement on the lift as I am backing in. Much easier than driving inward, kind of blind that way. I try to save my martini until afterward.

    I frequent Garage Journal forums. Many seem to like Bend Pak and their customer service is apparently top notch.

    one post with parking flat surface for small garage.

    Complete hydraulics are inexpensive and good way to go... not the best but works for me for 8 years holding heavy cars without any problem.

    Two posts may be a little better for working on most suspensions but if you only plan to have one, the four post is the best option.
    Here is mine.

    Cheers!

    This garage is 10'6"
    The 16M is raised pretty high in the pic. I could probably put the Bentley under the 16M if need be.

    I'd have to measure it out.
    Basically you need the height of each car added to about 1 1/2feet or so. The total should be under your ceiling height.
