    It is a Citroen. Pick a spot. Any spot.

    How so? The concrete under the slab will have well and truly settled.

    ...that so called concrete looks like it's about 50mm thick, that's dodgy.

    And distinctly lacking in reo..decidedly dodgy.

    But what if the two meters underneath it is frozen?

    Here's another way. Install a two post hoist into the slab. Works for Alain in France.

    that won't work as you still can't get the booms under the car .... I sure hope they never have to work on that hoist. Why didn't they get a four poster with belly lift

    That would be a bloody nightmare to service and worse to replace the chains/ cables.
