That's good to know.  I am prolly gonna get one now.  I was consider one 
of those "top changers" that suck out the oil from the dipstick tube, but 
since I'm gonna be on my back getting the filter off anyway, a valve would 
be pretty easy.  But then again, ah nevermind.

BTW Dan, I linked to some of your pages on my Audi page.  That's OK, no?
