Jack up or use ramps

For those of you who DIY, i.e., fluid changes, do you usually jack up your car or do you use ramps? If you use ramps, any recommendations of what and where to buy? With the Boxster being so low to the ground, are special ramps required. Thanks.

If your work place is flat it is better to jack up the left rear for an oil change. Then you lower the car during the drain.

There are low profile ramps.

Depending on the job, I use a floor jack / stands or Rhino ramps. The Rhino ramps easily fit under my non-lowered '00 S. I believe they were $32ish at WalMart four or five years ago and have held up great.
