What is your opinion on the Fumoto Valve?

Hi, Fanatics:

Hope this finds you well. I came across a Fumoto valve flyer at a truck store when picking up supplies for my fleet. I played with the valve and was impressed by its materials and it quickly dawned in me that I could change the oil in my M3 Without the help if the sealer for once. Anyone have any experience with a Fumoto valve?

Here's a link to their site. It look like the oil plug is recessed on an M3, so Fumoto recommends an extender, which they sell.

I look forward to reading your comments.

I think it's a solution to a nonexistent problem...do you have trouble changing your oil with a drain bolt, for some reason?

If any debris ever hits it and knocks it open, you're going to have a bad day if you don't notice right away. A local autocrosser had that happen, almost cost the engine in his STi.
