Default Oil change with suction pump

Hi
I have a C70 and thought I would invest in a cheapish electric suction pump to change the oil in my wife's car. I am aware of the various pros and cons.

My question is that my 2011 C70 has an electronic dipstick. Is there anywhere I can stick the tube (if you pardon the expression) to extract the oil?

Thanks

Graham

if you want to change the oil filter you need to get the car jacked up anyways, so why would you not just use the drain plug?

changing oil without changing the filter could result in clogged up filter and low oil pressure.

I agree that I should always also change the filter, but in mine, it comes out from above. Nice and easy.
