Unhappy stupid mistake 260 E

doh. I have a 89 260 E and it's a great car. I finally solved the overvoltage relay failure thanks to you guys here. Thanks so much. Heres my stupid problem. I was changing the oil and the shop that changed the oil previous overtightened the oil plug. So I managed to strip the plug big time. It's now mangled metal. I don't know what to do. I was hoping to get it off somehow and run over to a parts shop and get a replacement plug but it's so far gone now. Help. Do I just leave it there and change oil using a topsider from now on, or take it to a professional who knows what to do?
