No Dipstick = No Oil Extractor?

I use an oil extracting pump with both my X5 and M5 as we have a dipstick, making it extremely easy to extract and change the oil via this method. Because the M6 doesn't have a dipstick, I'm assuming I'm out of luck and have to get the car in the air to change the oil?

I can not specifically answer your question but the oil filter is on the bottom side of the car so it makes sense that you would have to get under the car anyways.

Filter is under the car anyway, plus I let mine drain for about 45mins to an hour there is residual oil in the oil coolers that take time to drain out
