[V8] Swing and a Miss + oil flush

Well, there's a couple Bimmers out there with an OBD port next to the 
ashtray on the center console.  The OBDII universal port is pretty easy 
to get to.  Getting down on my knees, pulling back the carpet and 
leaning deep into the foot well is not something I generally feel like 
doing.  I'm giving the neighbors a good mooning and they don't seem to 
appreciate the fine view they're getting! :)

Don't mind me, I'm just grumbling!

Oh!  And thanks to the harsh teachings that Mark and a lot of listers 
have received, I was darn sure to be 100% sure everything came off with 
the old oil filter!  Mark's instructions failed to mention the important 
step of stripping out plugs, busting knuckles, and other general helpful 
tips and hints.
