Default I hate raising cars by foor jack

Why is it that High End Car companies think that their Sh@tty flat bottom Farignueggy uni body cars are always going to get lifted properly and precisely supported by a four point lift and that the rubber or plastic lifting blocks to align the lifting pads or lifting Peg Holes will still be usable in 5 or 10 years, and there is no longer any thing provided inboard of rocker that resembles a box section of flooring under the undercarriage strong enough you can place a damn floor jack with a 2x4 to raise entire side of the car and place the jack stands under the proper support points anymore. There are many guys out there that don't have patience for the Farfignueggen BS and if someone seems to loose a few inches of head room or their seat has a Teutonic tilt toward their mate, Oh Well, guess they should have put a box section of sheet metal found on most cheap GM and Chryslers that Gomer jacks on on your Hi end Euro Turd ( and some Sh@tty Hondas) 2

My best guess so far is that either German engineers despise mechanics or just don't want people to work on their cars. How else do you explain stuff like lug bolts instead lug studs? "Hey! Let's annoy every tire guy on the planet! Why? Because we're German, it's what we do."

You would think for a country with some of the brightest minds in the world that built some of the toughest tanks and battleships during the war , that their D@mn High end cars would have some sort of Super Structure built into the under carriage of their cars to be able to withstand being jacked up safely by Gomer with a Harbor Freight Jack.
