Jack and how to to place it

Hello everyone,
I am new in the NG world, I just has the chance to buy a NG-TA and I am very happy with it !
The car came without any tool and especialy no Jack.
Can someone tell me which model to buy and more that that where to place on the chassis if I have to use it.
Thanks a lot for you answers !

Re: Jack and how to to place it

I use either a hydraulic trolley jack, or bottle jack. I just locate it under the chassis member, front or back, depending on which part you wish to lift. I usually put a small piece of thin plywood between the jack and the chassis, just to protect the paintwork. You can pick up a basic trolley jack for £20, which in my view is the best workshop tool.

I do carry a scissor jack in the car for emergencies - flat tyre etc - but luckily I have never had to use it.
