    Afternoon guys i decided to do an intermediate oil change and was very easy apart from the oil filter removal tool christ! it was a bad fit very tight i ended up tapping it on with soft face hammer very gently it did the job, was going to ask what are the good brands for this tool that fit well? the item i got from amazon said s55 and n55:oops2:. The oil reading i had prior' to the oil change was at top of electronic dipstick and said ok , this time with 6.5 litres of oil it came to bang in middle and ok any ideas guys please thank you

    You can get a Motorsport dipstick retrofitted on the S55, not sure about the N55 though.
