Driving an E-46 up Rino Ramps

A question for those of you who change your oil and use Rino Ramps for easy oil change access.

How difficult is it to drive the car (manual) up the ramps? Do they slide or stay put? Any tips for my first try at this?

Thanks in advance

As a true testiment to my "hackness", I once drove up the ramp (I don't have a Rhino Ramp, I have the yellow steel type ramp) and overshot the end of the ramp, and the car was trapped since the wheels have slipped off the front of the ramp.

And another time I thought I had made it to the top of the ramp, only to get out of my car, and have the ramp slip out from underneath the car since it didn't completely seat underneath. Now a days I jack up the car with my floorjack and slip the jack underneath the jack points if I'm taking off the wheels, or the ramp if I'm not taking off the wheels. :tsk:
