    It's a great feeling to have the place to yourself, after years of renting.

    You can remove one bolt at a time. it's fiddly, but easily done, a fraction of a turn at a time.
    Just make sure the combination spanner you use is good quality and has a good fit on the bolt head....

    No, you don't have to remove it for oil changes. If you had to do that, that would have been a major anti-buying strike as far as I'm concerned. I've not had to remove a 4-1 for oil changes for...
