So Alfa lists the official height at 56.1 but does that include the antenna on the rear or just "roof" height. Anyone with a quad can verify the height? Also does the antenna sit up higher than the highest point on the roof? - hard to tell in pics.


I need to fit this under my lift so height is a bit critical - :|

Will measure when I head home if anyone else hasn't measured already.

Great question. And how about ride height or height of front lip off ground when retracted. I may want to put my curb ramps out and leave until winter when the plows come around. I'll look it up in the meantime.

Well it looks like based on photographs with the 19 inch wheels that the front lip is between 3.8 and 4 inches or so off the ground when retracted. Seems typical.

like the lift in your garage...can you give me the specifics on where to find it? and do they do the install?
Thanks

BTW the 911 ain't bad either....love the Fiske rims:grin2:

Its a Bendpak HD-9ST - smallest footprint for a 4 post. I can shoot you the name of the distributor. You can have it installed if you want, I installed myself, pretty straightforward. I rented a trailer and picked it up from a warehouse and a buddy and I installed over a weekend. I also got the two trolley hydraulic jack options which is all integrated and they slide up and down the rails. That way you can lift the car on the lift - I use that for corner balance and alignments, brake work etc. The lift is good for 9000lbs. and each trolley jack is good for 4500lbs.

Motor Trend and Car and Driver typically publish physical specs with their articles. I would think the quad would fit without issue. It is fairly low to the ground and the roofline seems to be fairly streamlined to the point of cramping the rear seat position and rear passenger legroom.

That's why air-pumps are made ;) If it doesn't fit, letting the air out of the tires will gain that precious inch !
