On the lift issue, I always service my cars at the auto hobby shop on military bases. I always use a lift; I can't remember the last time I used a jack stand.
It's not common. My example was my 1989 E90 at about 220,000 miles. Changed the fuel pump in about 30 minutes before I went to work one day.

I have a lift in my garage, in never use jacksands either. When I wrote up the coolant DIY it was using the lift, and I found it no harder than my 1972 Pinto.
