I used a Pela pump for the first time on my 300C last year. Works fine, very clean and easy and overcomes the problem of having 9 litres of oil gushing out of the sump. I've been using the pump for several years now on my Audi with no problems. As for the critics who raise the issue of sludge removal, if it can't be sucked out, its unlikely to flow through the sump hole either. If the engine is warmed up first, hopefully any sludge should be in suspension anyway. Another advantage of the pump is that you can suck out about 250ml from the filter housing, which wouldn't drain through the sump.
