    Are you at stock ride height? If so a set of rhino ramps for $40 your local auto parts store will do the trick. Plus keep in mind you will need the tools to do said install. Like a breaker bar,torque wrench,etc.

    U can buy decent ones at harbor freight for like $40. Or just use a jack and stand to change oil. $100 is way too much.
    5qts of mobile1 at costco is $30. + $12 oil filter should b fine. Since my car has so little miles tho and havent needed oil change, not sure if everyone here would recommend mobile1. Any thoights on oil selection. I've always prefered full synthetic

    I honestly have never used ramps to do an oil change or a downpipe swap. I just use a floor jack to get me some clearance. But Rhino ramps work fine.

    Bought my rhino ramps for $35 from pep boys. Love em and all my friends use them. You friend is kinda being an ******* for wanting that much money for an install. I do so much work on my friends cars for free.

    I have Race Ramps and they are awesome...but I first purchased the 40 inch ramps as I was told they should fit (I contacted the company and was instructed how to measure to make sure they would fit)...but they didn't clear the front fascia.
    So the 52 inch ramps worked perfect...I have a '12 WRX, stock height.
