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.
Before you go investing in a oil extractor if you decide to, do a search on BMW dealers that run specials in your area on oil and filter changes. got mine changed for $59.95 and they even fill all the fluids and give you a safety check for the same price. Good luck
cheers
