Chicago Oil Change - Ouch!

Just had my oil changed at Fletcher Jones in Chicago. Guess I should have asked the price.

So $148 later I drove out with my fresh new oil...

Any recommendations for a good place in the Chicagoland area that is a little less expensive?

Buy your own oil and filter and DIY or have local mechanic do it
V8 has two drainplugs BTW

I have always changed my own oil before...where can I find the oil filters? I guess I never even thought to check at Pep Boys or something like that...

Well I should've kept quiet, but I'll tell. Fletcher Jones and especially Chad the service manager are the worst people ever. And I mean it. I'm doing my business at Jennings now, Fletcher Jones is a ripoff. STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS!!!
