Should of given me a call, i worked out the best way for a DIY oil change. Infact i done an oil change on the XR6 (Bloody $82.50 for 5 litres of Mobil 1 10w-30) today.
I use 2 planks of wood first plank of wood being longer in length than the next so the car goes up in a step. No dramas to get under car after that. Planks are about 1inch think so combining both makes it 2inch's enough to get under the car.
For the bottom plank make sure you get one thats got a rough texture the smooth stuff makes the top plank slide as we found out today.
About the cracks in windscreen, farout i've jacked my Xr6 heaps of times to clean wheels etc and so far nothings happened, infact i'm amazed how much more stiffer the AU shell is compared to the ESeries.
