I just wanna thank everyone here..

For my 3000th post, I am making this thread to share my feelings with you guys.

These past few months owning my BMW have showed me what being one of you guys is all about. I feel like we are all family. A special thanks to all of NGC/SGC... Jay, Amit, Kalim, Sophia, Albeee, Toby, Chad, Kyle, Kelvin, Koven, Rick, Derek, Rob, Gabe, Nick, Vince and Anto... All the countless nights working on my car have proven worth it. The GC is running at top velocity thanks to all of you. My last 3000 posts have been nothing but emotional and filled with thanks.

I just wanna let the noobs know that YES YOU CAN be a part of us! We are very welcoming! We love all of you! Knowledge is here! Come and get it!! We can be tough and all "Grrr!!" but don't be afraid!

Can't wait to make love with more of you at BimmerFest!!! I am so excited!!!! OMG!

Love,

Before I got to the end of your post I was going to say a sock... but since you mentioned it im not sure its such a good idea. Maybe a condom

You could always use an oil extractor though. Just make sure your engine isnt still hot. Ive heard those things can melt in your oil... thats not good

This would work.

Protip: Just make sure you idle the engine a bit. If it's left cold, it's possible cotton fibers from the sock was start to fall into the mix. Should be good
