Actually, from my perspective it is very cool that the oil change is a bit of a job. When you have to remove the bottom of the car to gain access to the filter and drain plug - you really feel like you have accomplished something.
Love that video - that's overcoming adversity right there.
As for the oil change, most cars I've seen from the last 6-8 years have some kind of aero/drip catcher undertray you have to take off to do the job.
I actually think the Elise oil change is the easiest of my cars: no need to touch the dirty filter material to pull it over o-rings like the Mercedes cartridge system and the filter isn't pointing sideways and hidden deep in the wheel well like on my 4runner.
Bitchin' is sort of our hobby here...we love to do it because we have a problem with our cars - but we all know if your biggest problem you have in life is with your car...well... you don't really have any problems.
I don't know what people are complaining about. The fact that I can just drive up onto the ramps is wonderful! I certainly can't do that with my dually. Removing the cover is just time consuming but still not hard. I'm sure if a girl can do it you big strong men should be able to handle it with a blindfold on.
