    Total 5 washers so it should have been correct.

    Yes, at least this part's right.

    If I had a lift a home, I would definitely do the oil change myself....

    However, if you want to feel comfortable, spend another $160, buy new oil+filter+washers, and change the oil. That’s what I’d do...

    I know it is a pain if you don’t have a lift. You may want to take a look at QuickJack (ECS Tuning carries them at reasonable prices.) Also you may want to check shops around you. Where I live, there are shops that let you “rent” their lifts hourly on Sundays.

    I am attaching a picture of the oil color from my car (changed the oil something like 10 days ago...)

    if it isn't straight black or smells like gasoline it's probably newish oil. I think it's about a quart of oil that's left in there if it was overfilled I'm guess more then a quart of old oil

    Thanks for the photo. The color of your 10 day old oil appears to be slightly lighter than mine, perhaps very similar.

    Did you change the oil yourself? If so do you know how much old oil was collected?

    I did not measure what drained out :-(
    However, I've added about 8.5 liters and that was enough.

    This is accurate. It doesn't take many miles at all to make oil look "dirty". I'd be more concerned with overfilling than I would color.

    So according to this guy on youtube:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRW26gg6HA8&t=491s

    There are 7 drain plugs instead of 5 that we know.

    However, based on this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZO7r-huopOY&t=722s this guy only drained out from 5 and got about 9 liters of oil out.
