    ...or just drain it out the bottom? 19mm socket/spanner and a lightly warmed engine... job done...

    Car on ramps or lye underneath it, that's the old fashioned example BMW e46 stick it in and the oil filters at the top no need to lift car of the ground

    On ramps or axle stands... sump plug is at the back of the sump so oil will run out nicely if the fronts up a bit plus easier to get to the oil filter...

    Best way is through the sump plug as them oil extractors don't get any of the debris out of the sump an dont do a very good job getting all the oil out not been funny but if ya really can be bothered to jack the car up etc pay a garage that's even easier than buying a extractor lol
