Whistle Those don't work as well as they should... they tend to run out of lift before the wheels get off the ramp... by experiment it was found to be an advantage to start in high mode and use some large packers... where as a 2 post lift is by far a better option, except you don't have as much storage space for the bits coming off Thumbs Up Yesterday I couldn't spell Engineer...

Floor paint isn't worth the hassle, it peels due to the hot tyres sitting on top of it and cooling down. Plastic tiles are the way to go

I have the green strongman clifton as shown in the first post in my garage - had it since Feb last year. I don't use it very much but its important when I do. It was able to lift my 2005 Dodge Ram which believe it or not is a similar weight to an L322. It comes in a forklift style wooden box which contrary to the video you cannot remove the raised forklift sections from so getting it out of the box was a nightmare. Had to cut the box off while supporting and lowering it from two jacks. You can move it about the place if you are strong and mine at least came with the hydraulic fluid as well, you just need the correct power supply and off you go.

I strongly suspect its a made in china jobbie but its certainly stoutly constructed and gives confidence.

I've got an inexpensive Chinese made 2-post lift designed for low ceilings. I've got 9'3" height in the garage, and these posts come in just over 9', fit without modification. 8000lbs load certified, had no problem lifting the Rover. Mostly I use it for low-and-light sports cars which it can lift high enough for me to sit comfortably under and work on, but with the RR I can get the wheels about 6" off the ground with the garage door open, or 24" off the ground with the door shut.

So, don't rule out the 2 poster entirely. I don't know who would sell them on your side of the pond, but they're pretty easy to get over here.

Whistle Strongman Tools do a 4 Ton 2 post lift that's almost a thousand ponds cheaper than that scissor lift, and is far more useful Thumbs Up

Reach is your garage detached from the house? if so I'd be tempted to give it a pitched roof Wink Yesterday I couldn't spell Engineer... Today I are one!
