Default 2nd; have a steel jack and stands for home use and AAA for emergencies.

Lightweight aluminum jack + 4000 lb car = accident waiting to happen.

Default Just print out all these postings and FedEx them to AOA.

Haven't used the jack myself on the A8 (but had used the ones in two previous, smaller, Audi's), partially due to existing warranty that covered tire service and mostly due to the numerous postings on this topic in the past!
