You need to recalibrate your wife. Tell her not many women have a husband who can fix thier car just by going into the garage. My wife appreciates the fact that I have a full auto shop in my garage. Re-did the whole suspension in her Z3 last year. Then the clutch throwout bearing started to make noise, I said "No problem, I'll order the parts today". New clutch installed and a smile on her face and she could walk over to the garage at any time and see the progress.
Get a two post lift and park your car in that spot.
