Default Ramp to get up curb

Has anyone had experience with something like this?





I have a curb that I want to drive my slightly lowered E36 up. It's a standard curb, so around 5 inches or so in height. I'm not sure if this ramp is long enough. I was planning on getting 4 of these and bolting them together.

I don't know that those ramps would help enough.

A few years ago, a friend of mine added concrete to the end of his driveway to help with his lowered R32.

Depending on where you live, I'm not sure how the city/county or HOA would feel about added concrete.

Yeah the city wouldn't want you to add concrete there. I need to find a solution that can easily be removed if I get cited.

Just build them out of wood. Far cheaper and you can build them to exactly the height/gradient you need

In my last house, I had the curb and sidewalk removed and repoured. Everyone on the Cul-du-sac did it at the same time, we got a good deal. Our current house wasn't much cheaper. I had to have a 1/4 mile of gravel driveway paved... 12.4 seconds to get to the road now...lol in the corvette it's 11.3 @125... (I'm kidding...)
