Hi guys, there's a company which makes oil-drain-valves which replace the standard oil drain plug. Seems these oil drain valves are quite popular on the Nissan G35 forums. So I decided to install it on my W140. The valve opens and closes with a lever on it, and allow you to drain the used oil directly into bottles. I was quite impressed, I can now change the oil in 10 minutes in a public parking lot, without any tools or without the mess of an oilpan. Heres some pics:

Hi I ordered it from www.fumotovalve.com . The valves are made in Japan by a company called Fumoto.

Part number for W140 is:

F106N ($25.95 USD, version with "nipple" to attach tubing)
F106 $22.95 USD regular verision without the nipple.

Cheers,
Rainmaker
