I am totally not a DIY person as I am a girl and would rather pay a bit more to get things done. So I live in Los Angeles and an Indy wants to charge me $118 for an oil change on my 2001 530i. Does the price seem right?
tell your boyfriend to get under the car and change the oil for you!!

actually you can buy one of those oil extractors so you dont even need to get under the car.

I have something like this.. http://www.autosportcatalog.com/gara...-extractor.cfm

the only thing you will need to do is change the filter which is on the top of the car. so you probably wont even get your hands dirty. I usually get my oil from costco when its onsale for like $30 for a case of 6 . and the filters are like $5.

so you figure about $35 worth of parts and your time or pay someone $120 ? you do the math.
