Most of the MBs have a sump guard; in some models or areas they are plastic; some have sound insulation; they are then generally referred as splash guard

I think for bad road conditions they provide metal sump guards; and it is heavy and runs the entire length of the engine bay; Advantage You dont have to worry about scraping; disadvantage..its is a pain to realize if your oil is leaking as it never reached the ground; hence why open the sump bolt at the first place

Yes the pic is of W124; In some countries its plastic; however India looks the same but in metal barring some complex curve on the sides

Well , here its opposite, people pay the garage to buy used oil from them! although at a pretty low price. Around 20Rs per 5 litres

Excellent stuff, care to share the name of the dealer from where you bought the extractor? I am planning to buy one for my swift diesel. I am tired of changing the hex sump bolt on every oil change as the bolt head slips everytime.

Conventional Draining is better, albeit messy.
you are very clearly wrong. Oil drain plug in most cars is not at the under side of the sump. When they are located on the lateral side, the drain plug thread is always slightly above the bottom of the pan where a lot of gunk/water/debris accumulate. Extraction will mean that the tube inserted will get to reach the bottom of the sump pan via dipstick hole, even below the oil drain plug thread. It will remove an extra 200ml of fluid than conventional sump drain in most cases.
