    I haven't tried anything yet, but what about on the differential? Would that hold/or be safe?

    According to the Audi manual on my (W) A4 reg there should be marks on the side of the car under the doors where the jacking points are.

    they can still go there as well. You may need to put a bit of wood on the top as well so that they dont dig in.
    Or use a couple of trolly jacks.

    I would feel a lot more safe when going underneith the car with stationary jacks rather than the crank jack or a hydrolic jack. I have these ramps that allow a car/truck to drive up them and works as a jack. It take it about 2 feet of the ground. I might try that if all else fails. I like your idea of a couple trolly jacks Markey.

    What i tend to do is put two trolly jacks under each side then place the free standing ones under as well and get a tight fit, so if one fails there is a safty net, i also put bricks under as well.
    The ramps are better though i have them too, once the car is one the flat bit at the top then it aint going anywhere.
    I know what you mean though it is worring when you are under a car, you think is that safe or will my face get squashed.
