Exclamation Oil Change Question

I am about to do my second oil change since owning my car. I noticed on the first change, and the few of my friends that I have also done, I can't get all the oil out. I see oil in the filter housing, I know there's oil in the lines to the turbos. Is there any way to get this oil out. I'm just thinking that leaving this oil in, which might be half to 1 whole quart, would contaminate the new oil. Any help is appreciated.

No way to get all the oil out. When you drain it you get majority of it out. That is good enough.

You will never get all the oil out, plus you woudln't want to do that anyways...Dry start= VERY VERY BAD...n52/4 require 7 quarts so say theirs 1/2 left in the bock (bearings,head,rings) you still putting more new oil versus old 7 to 0.5

I did an oil change in my garage last week on a N55. After all the oil drained out, I jacked the driver side only with the passenger side on the ground. More oil drained out. After that, I removed the oil filter housing and sucked all the residual oil with a tukey baster. Like others have mentioned, it's not a big deal to leave some residual oil in the car, as it's going to be small compared to the overall new oil, but I get your concerns...
