Default 2016 A3 oil change

Can a fluid extractor be used to remove the oil in a 2016 A3? Will it reach to the bottom of the pan? I don't want to mess around with the replaceable plastic oil plugs in the pan.

I have used a fluid extractor on my 2016 2.0 and it went very well and removed all the old oil as far as I can tell. Seamless oil change using this method and I've used it on almost all the other vehicles I maintain.

So, I've only had mine for ~4k miles and don't know about this yet: The oil plug is plastic...?

my understanding was that the plug and pan are plastic, and the plug is not reusable.

The car is designed for oil extraction. Mercedes has been that way for years already.

I use a Mityvac fluid extractor on my 2015 A3 and it works very well.
