The tip for fast oil vacuuming is attach pump big hose to the top of dipstick tube.
The small tubings going to the bottom pan give lot of restrictions.

You can drain from the oil pan drain plug, but you have to remove a LOT of body panels to do so. Plug washers on German cars are ALWAYS replaced NEVER reused.

There is no dipstick.

You should own the service DVD and refer to it before proceeding.

Star Service CDs and DVDs
I totally agree and found a place in Michigan that has them in stock for $115.97
2003 - 2008 Mercedes-Benz 211 E-Class Factory Service & Owners Manual DVD (E320, E500, E55, E350, E63; AMG, 4Matic, CDI, Kompressor, BluTec).
It was a very smooth transaction over the phone. They get them from MBUSA in bulk.
