the independent shop charges $108.00 for an oil change and uses Mobil 1.

an extractor at Bavauto is $90.00, 7 qts of 0 W40 at auto zone is $63.00 and a Mann filter is $8.00.

i always manage to spill oil when i do a diy so i go to the independent shop. the extractor looks like an easy solution, and in three oil changes it would pay for itself.
Extractors always leave residue in the pan. Kind of like getting all of your milkshake with the glass sitting on the table and without moving your straw around.
