Oil Extractor

I have seen several comments that you can't use an oil extractor on the N54 engine because it does not have a dipstick, so no place to insert the extractor wand.

Does anyone know for sure if this is true? Will the wand work in the filter hole? Is there any other top side access to the oil pan?

I'd prefer to use an extractor if there were a way to use it.

Can you tell us what is the advantage of using an extractor vs. drain?

an extractor allows you to change the oil without crawling under the car to drain from the oil pan. See the following article: http://www.kk.org/cooltools/archives/001299.php
