Good to know on these 2 shops. Also Avus in Glendale does good work. Reasonable rates, Dinan dealer.

Oh and you might consider a microfilter while you're at it as the dealer typically changes that at the same time as oil changes.

For the price of labor, you could get some ramps, oil drain canister, and some metric allen sockets.
