Just saw this thread. I have used a 4 post lift in a standard garage since I bought my car. With a low profile car you can get enough height to roll around on a small seat under and work very comfortable. One thing you need to check before buying the lift is how low the is first "lock". Mine has a very low lock, about 6", then the next place you can lock the lift is about 2.5 feet up. After that they are spaced every couple inches. My point being you need to be able to set the lift on a lock and still have room for your car not to touch the roof. I usually put my garage door down while raising the car for extra clearance, watching the door rails, then I can open the door once the lift is locked in place.
If you need some height measurements from my lift let me know.
Oh and I almost forgot, another advantage to parking under a 4 post lift is you can throw some cheap lumber on top and have extra garage storage. It's like having another garage floor to store stuff out of the way!
If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!
