is this a jack to carry with you in the car? Or one to use in the garage?

if the former, then space is at a premium and it will only be used in emergencies...choose something easy to use that is compact. Either scissors or bottle jack, I think

if the latter, then you are probably wanting maximum leverage, space is not so much of an issue. I'd choose a good quality floor jack.

I've used bottle, scissors and floor jacks on the X3 E83 with good results in my garage.
