    Not that I know of. I just unscrew the tube connection and dump it into another container.

    I was wondering if anyone had a good exhaust tip recommendation or at least good vendors for my to browse. Thanks guys
    Reviving this, partly to ask a different question. I have a Vibrant 1148 muffler: the SS tip was finished black and the black coating quickly started failing. Vibrant was NO help. I'd like to either strip off the remaining black coating or cover the twin 3" tips with something else. Ideas?

You want to change the oil while it's hot and thin, so you don't have to wait on the car to cool down either. Just drive home, pop the hood, shove it down the dipstick tube, pump a couple times to build the vacuum, then start changing the filter. By the time you're halfway through changing the filter, you'll hear the extractor sucking air - she's done! Add new oil and call it a day.

    I can't find it anymore, but I got a manual 7.5L version (didn't even want the pneumatic option). Simple and just big enough for an e46 oil change. I love it.
    Awesome, I'll definitely being doing my own oil changes from now on, and with the FCP warranty that's one less cost to worry about.

    I haven't been in good enough health to put it to use but I bought a well-reviewed unit inexpensively at West Marine. I believe it was this one: https://www.westmarine.com/buy/west-...uart--11047123

    How well does it work?

    From what I've been hearing people have concerns about not getting some of the residue from the bottom, but have never tried it themselves.
    I have one and itís awesome! Canít tell you how nice this is and it makes changing the oil so much easier. This thing saved me when I over filled my wifeís 4Runnner by a quart. Just suck out some oil thru the dipstick tube and was in range. Cleanup is just as easy. Pull the tube out, pump it a few times so it sucks the oil out of the tubes, disconnect the tubes and pour the oil into a drum or in my case plastic 5 gallon tote. If you are worried about oil residue laying in the bottom of the oil pan just do a regular oil change every 3rd oil change or so.

    Am I missing something, the capacity is just under 7quarts wouldn't that mean our cars have more oil than this thing can hold at one time?

    Isnít the capacity of the ZHP 6.5 quarts thatís doing a ďFullĒ drain. You will syphon approx 6 quarts or so.
    1 quart equals .95 liters, this is 6.5L.

    You can always transfer some of the oil into a container and continue draining the rest. Itís super easy to transfer.

    I found a set of Style 68's for sale locally. I've always liked the looks of these wheels. I did a bit of research on the wheel weights vs. the Style 135's, and it looks the Style 68s are about 9.5kg front/9.9kg rear, and the style 135s are about 11.2kg front/11.9kg rear. My question is, does anyone have the experience to say whether or not this weight savings (approximately 3.7lb front and 4.4lb rear) will feel any different with regards to acceleration and/or NVH? Thanks.
