Do they leak???

These gadgets make me nervous. The penalty for a leaking valve is a ruined motor.

If your goal is to make oil changes easier, why not simply get a dipstick oil suction tool from Griot's Garage? Combined with the nifty remote oil filter in the 540i, you don't have to crawl under the car. Heck, you can even wear nice clothes.
