Oil change question for a DIY guy
Ok guys this is probably a stupid question coming from someone who has owned many hi performance cars such as Vipers, Corvettes, etc. This is the first Mercedes I purchased, its a 2008 SLK 350, and I just love the car. But I'm the type of guy that likes to get his hands dirty, and having a lift in the garage usually makes doing routine maintaince easy for me to do myself. So here is the question, "where the heck is the drain plug and oil filter located on this car". I had it up on the lift and poked around and for the life of me they have hidden them real good cause I can't find them. And yes I did remove the bottom plastic shield. Its a little embarassing but since this Mercedes thing is new to me I thought I would ask the veteran Mercedes guys. So hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. And please don't tell me to take it to the dealer.
