Mine drain very easily.

But, knowing how little overall impact the oil would have if left alone ... pfffft. Would not lose sleep.

I've gotta do my oil change soon and I'm not going to risk stripping out the little allen plugs on the turbos since everyone seems to have the same opinion. I had it done about 2,000 miles ago, but it was February 2017. So, I'm past one year timewise. Moral of the story is that I need to drive the car more, dammit.

I have done mine twice over the years, FYI the 997tts do not have drains.
