If I remember correctly I paid $70.00 just for 7 qts of oil and a filter. I do all my own oil changes and actually find it an enjoyable, zen thing to do. But as I said before I have a shop and an easy way to dispose of the oil. If I had nowhere to do it but a parking lot or the street I'd take it to the dealer or other trusted tech every time.
