Right now I have two jack stands and a floor jack. Problem is there's no place to put the stands when I jack the car using the jack points. What I've been doing is puttting the jack right next to the point and using a wood block between the jack and the car. I'm afraid I might crush a brake line or worst if I continue this. Question: Will my S-Class drive up ramps without problem? The front bumper seems too low for this but I'm not sure.

Thanks Once Again,

What you do is lift your car as high as you can each side, put ramps under wheels make sure they are both in same place (in line )remove jack and drive carefully up to top.. easy if you take care....

I just bought some 6000lbs "Rhino ramps" the other day to change the voltage regulator on my 190E. I got 6000lbs to be SURE they can handle the S-class.

you can drive it up straight without much problem too, we pulled our s320 up straight with one of us spotting the front end and it cleared it pretty well.

and we pilled some of those wide bricks up on both sides right below the jack points just in case anything happened, it would probably cause alot of damage but life is worth more then a car.
