yeah... but... gotta drive the car there, then wait for the tech to change it, or leave it there, get a ride home.. come back...

The last time I took a vehicle to get an oil change was when the mechanic put the new filter on with a pneumatic air gun. Had it torqued on so hard the next oil change I had to drive holes in with a screwdriver to get it off. Thats when I took the oath.

Oil is the life of your engine, if they screw it up, if they forget to refill it and drive it out into the parking lot, running the engine just for a few minutes will take 50,000 miles of wear off your bearings. They could use the wrong oil, strip out the drain plug... its just not worth the risk to me.
