Actually I used to have a ramp setup for getting cars in and out of shipping containers, I'll see if I can chase up where they came from......

+1 for first thoughts.....Ive been looking for a new house recently and the first thing I look at is the driveway.. its my first priority, then as much parking as I can get. :)

I always look at levels when I do developments -  saves a lot of hassle and cost down the track.

for my place where the garage is lower than street level I put a bump in the driveway so the porsche can get in and out without scraping.  Silly thing tp do really because the porsche never gets out

What about a big sheet of aluminium checker plate. Strong enough to hold the car but light enough to move out of the way when not needed.

Just as a quick fix for now????

I tried that with my first 997 some years ago but it bent out of shape very quickly.
As a short term solution I once put some rolled up carpet between the drive and the road. Very classy!
I've also done the bit of wood thing but be careful it doesnt flip up. I damaged some body work doing this.
A metal workshop can do a proper sheet and mold to dimensions of drive.

3 options.

1. Steel Checker plate with bracing underneath to stop it from crushing into the shape of the gutter.
2. Use the plastic 4WD ramps.
3. Hit the top of the driveway with enough speed to clear the gutter.

Mine was a daily driver, so I used axle lift all the time, couldn't own a car without it.  Porsche don't have a retrofit kit as such, but I have heard of people doing it.  Did PCM quote you a price Aaron?, I expect it would be well over $10K.

Aaron, talk to PR Technology in Brookvale in Sydney. They do a retro fit lift for the GT3 and RS.

I think that I am going to need a lift kit...

Any problems with other cars in the fleet?  How does the 458 come out?

Or option 4- don't give a shit and bash your way in/out :p
