After only having the dealer change the oil over the first 35k miles...I decided to give it a try. Noticed two annoying things...

1. The bolt on the rear sump was nearly stripped...so chances are the dealer over torque one or more times.

2. The bolt on the front sump was immaculate...which led me to believe my dealer didn't ever bother draining the front sump.

Since I didn't have the greatest experience with the 6mm allen hex bit during my DIY oil change...I went searching for alternative oil drain plugs...hoping to find a magnetic one that wasn't an allen hex. I too noticed Turner had something of the sort but it didn't fit my 08. Ultimately, I did find one though. It's been purchased but not installed at this point.
