Topsider wort it or not???

I know MB Autowerks uses them so they must do a good job but I was wondering what everyone out there thinks of them? I have noticed a lot of older mechanics and car guys do not like the idea at all. I was thinking of getting one but it's no big deal because I can run the car up on ramps in less than 3 min. (timed myself )

thanks

Definately "wort" it! I use mine on about 8 engines regurlarly. Fast, clean and effective.

All things should work as well as a Topsider!

We had a LENGTHLY thread about this subject over in Diesel Forum several months ago. It went about the same as the great synth-oil vs dino-oil debate. Do a search and enjoy!

Over here we just take it to any place which does oil changes. They normally dispose it for free. Some places charge to get rid of the filter though.

The only thing I don't like about the topsider is the plastic tube collapsed on me when I sucked up some hot oil. Gotta find a silicon tube for that sucker.

All youz guys with older Benzs, especially from the 80's, that never go to the diesel forum outta check in once in awhile. We have a lot more helpful stuff than I find in any of the other forums here, even the Tech forums. We don't just talk about Diesel specific problems. We really cover the W126's pretty well.
