It's a shame they had to move the filter to a bottom-side arrangement. But I've done dozens of messy bottom-side oil changes without a lift- not that big of a pain really. It's the waiting at the dealership that kills me. I remember waiting over twenty minutes at the dealer for my first complimentary oil change on my '11. When I saw they hadn't even brought the car into a bay yet I left and didn't return until buyback day.
