Not having a driveway is the biggest pain, not really a fan of trying to do work like that on a public road because of the safety/liability aspect (for me and 3rd parties!).

What I might do is have a word with the guys who work at a factory down the road from me who have a nice big car park which is empty evenings/weekends to see if they would have any problem with me using it (and sticking a tarp or something under the car to make sure I did not get oil all over it!)

Hey, maybe post-credit crunch (if I still have a car!) I will move to somewhere with a nice big flat driveway!!!

Worth considering even getting an oil and filter change done at a local indepedant as they can be very competitive on oil and filter changes, When you take into account what price a filter and oil then there is the disposal of the filter and used oil afterwards
