I need an oil change anybody want to help me

I need an oil change for my e92 however I don't have a jack or the tool to open up the oil filter. Would someone like to do an oil change for me? I got the oil and oil filter already. I need it done ASAP. I am in the 91709 area or anybody in diamond bar, chino, walnut, rowland heights area that would be great.

I just go to Brake Masters they only charge me $20 labor for oil change when you bring your own oil & filter.

If you're not a pretty girl, or at least a cool chick, then it is customary to offer up a couple beers, or some Scotch, something to smoke, ya know, buddy shit...

Dems the rules, read the fine print on the back of your mancard.

Alternatively, to ensure the security of your own man cards, buy the tools and do it yourself, or just hand over some cash...

Harbor Freight for floor jack, online for filter tool, and Sears or similar for jack stands. OR you can just buy the drive up ramps instead of the floor jack, but floor jack is more flexible. Every man should have one.

Seems you all are missing something being in possession of the materials without having considered the ability to do the actual work.

I would do it but I'd have to charge you $100.

I'd have to bring my ramps, drain pan, and tools. Then gas money and dispose fee.

Time is money. Take it to a shop.

Might be worth it to just take it to BMW. Sometimes they have $20 off coupons you can ask for. Plus you get a free car wash. Sucks waiting 2 hours though...

What do you guys do with your old oil? I know you're not watering the lawn with it regardless of what Tyler says, so what do you do with it? I've got a couple of gallons that Waste Management wont let me drop off. I've considered just dropping them off behind the local Pep-Boys but I'm not shady like that.

Beer, for oil change, always a win and everyone can learn something at some point.
