I will, no offense.

I just wanted to correct some misconceptions in this thread. A Mityvac 7400 7.3l vacuum extractor will get more oil, more effectively, from the sump than gravity drain, for any BMW M54 engine. I along with many others have proven this over and over.

No jacking or ramps are required. The pump allows no contact with carcinogenic used engine oil. It is received in an enclosed container for ease of recycling. From drive in to hood down, the oil and filter can be changed in 15 to 30 minutes. The beer is optional.

YMMV, of course. Good luck.
