Engine Oil Drain Plug on 2014 S3

I meant to take a picture the other day when I took the undertray off on my 2014 S3 (8v model??) to show the composite plastic sump and the rather odd looking drain bung.

It looks like it may use a special oil extraction system rather than the usual unscrew and let the oil pour out, can anyone shed any light on this type of bung and how you would normally drain the engine oil please?

Thanks
Arcam

Not to worry, got the info elsewhere

I will take a pictures of the bung as I purchased a new one the other day from the stealers and I will be changing the oil and filter tomorrow.

Changed the oil and filter today so I thought I would share some pics that may be of interest - particually of the new sump and plug.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Do you reuse the plug or have to replace it?

I reused it in the end Graham, I did purchase a new one (4.27 inc VAT), but mine is only 2 months and 5k miles old and looked fine, I just wanted to have one "just in case"
