        Then the problem is at your front skirt, you'll crack the skirt with a normal jack! I promise you that!

            the 16" space saver from an astra or a vectra will fit over the brakes and does the job perfectly

              There isnt a jacking point for a standard jack.

                yeah read the handbook, says dont use a jack on vxr's, might just buy a brand new wheel from dealer so AA could fit it at roadside (they'll have trolley jack?).

                      Basically NO!!!!! You will need a scissor jack (I've got a Draper 1.5tonne Scissor Jack , stock no:- 87433, part no SJ2A) I've also got a full size spare wheel. This does take up a lot of space. I got a an extending brace from LIDL.
