Not looking forward to doing mine either, as like you, I have heard it is a pain and can be messy if you don't use some type of empty pail/bucket such as an ice cream/margaine container.

I got 2 free oil changes with mine so hopefully I can sneak into the shop and watch the mechanice do it the first time so I can learn something?
