This is the final nail in the coffin of taking my Boxter to a mechanic for regular maintenance. It's probably cheaper to buy the tools to do the oil change, and other regular maintenance myself than pay to fix it when the mechanics mess up.
The oil change is pretty much a no-brainer. I have 2 ramps for the rear wheels, a large oil drain pan, and the special tool for removing the oil filter canister. That's all. It's a 15 minute job.
