LOL! That made me laugh. (Not at you, of course.) Yea, bad experience for sure, will sour it.I had one of those farking Flakemoto valves on my GTI. I'm at stock ride height & knocked it loose.....
Well......depends. To each his own, I suppose. I HATED turning that oil pan bolt, and then giving it a quick yank trying to get my hand out of the way before the oil gushed out. And, while it was under warranty and the dealer did oil changes, they'd torque down that goddam bolt as if it was a tire lug or something. Always afraid they'd strip it, just it time for me to have to buy a new oil pan out of warranty. Or, like what happened once, in my haste I dropped the bolt. Guess where it went.....INTO the oil pan. Of course. Phhht. And then, you have to buy extra crush washers; ehh, no.Not worth the 30sec time saving 3 times a year
This way, with the fumoto, I just position the drain pan, turn the valve on the fumoto, have a beer while it drains. No fuss, no muss.
