    Any ideas on how to minimize/contain the oil leakage when removing the filter? No matter how careful I am I always seem to spill a little oil on the upper parts of my under carriage. I was thinking about unscrewing it with a heavy duty plastic bag wrapped around it.

    No, right hand side of the engine facing down. Just almost as easy to change as the V6.

    Yep. Very easy to change, unless you get that sucker on there too tight, then it can be a little bit of a hassle.
