What are everyone's thought's on using a topside oil changer to suck the oil out? That way you dont have to get under to undo the plug.
Granted on my Golf the filter is on the bottom so I'd still have to get under it.
I think you would be better off draining from the pan. I doubt you can get all the crap that settles at the bottom of the pan otherwise.
Why is this thread in the detailing forum btw.
