Ok,

How much does the dealership charge for this simple process?
I changed the oil on my Zs so I saved myself about 4.00(lol) and on my
integra I just took it in which cost me 20.00 every 3k. I couldn't imagine
it being super expensive - 30s?

Should I have the dealership do it or take it elsewhere?
What do yall recommend? And I really don't want to do it myself. Those
days are over until I get another sports car.

Thanks
Drew

I saw a 2002 M5 at a 10 minute oil change place near my house........

Its a damn oil change, If you have free, service under warrenty go to a dearler if not go to any oil change specialty shop... They are usually faster then a dealer and in most cases are closer to you.... anyplace can change the oil of your car.. Its not like their gonna rebuild the engine

take it to whoevers the cheapest and offers decent oil. you really cant screw up an oil change job if ur a certified mechanic. plus alot of local places run coupons in the mail, and u could get it done for low 20's

I'll check the local Union76 on the corner. See if they have the reset tool or not.
The Jiffy Lube place is way too much for what they do. I actually went to ask how
much for a change and the guy told me to check out Walmart to change my oil.
*sigh*

Thanks!

Mods, please get rid of those pics or delete the post.
That's some pretty sick stuff.
