    Information note on Vacuum Oil Extractor and Oil Change.
    After some internet investigation I got a TopSide Oil Extractor and give it a try on my e46 330i.
    Worked GREAT !! Changed oil and filter wo any trouble.
    Followed directions and had no trouble removing oil.
    Put 7 quarts back in and had no overage on dipstick.
    BTW...Mobile 1 0W-40 is BMW grade on this.

    Vacuum oil extractors help with doing the most..

    critical maintenance chore of any car - the oil change. It's hard to believe that, of all cars, a BMW would be the easiest one to change the oil! Who would dare to stretch oil changes to 15k miles when an oil extractor makes the job so easy?
    By using Mobil 1 10w-40 High Mileage oil (bought at Walmart) and BMWCCA discounts for oil filters, the oil change costs for my 330ci are no higher than any of my other cars.
    I switched to M1 10w-40 HIgh Mileage oil because it is readily available, is A3 rated and has plenty of viscosity to keep things protected no matter what the temps. The detergency package is amazing - Mobil 1 products do a commendable job of keeping an engine clean.
