I am a drain phine.... Usually let my personal oil change sit over night before re-filling. Also drain when HOT.
yeah changing the oil filter is a pain in the butt. I decided to take the long route and make access a bit easier. Figured it would probably be the easiest way to get the filter removed. Here is a picture for reference. Yeah audi sure made it difficult to change the oil .... bastages

well its not done yet - as you can see the oil filter is still on the housing haha - it seems I missed something
Custom made... hit my fotki, you'll see the canton take off plate, then the mocal remote four port mount and the mocal thermostatic sandwitch plate, I have a aftermarket oil pressure sensor and oil temp sensor installed along with a SETRAB oil cooler. I sourced most of my parts from bat-inc
Here's how I change the filter...

Its odd, but after you do it once it's really no longer a pain. Also, the first time sucked because the monkeys at the dealer who did the last freebie oil change cranked the filter on there so tight. Once I got it off, and put the new one the correct way, I use a end cap filter wrench to break it free and then turn by hand...and when I re-install I hand tighten it, then 1/4 turn with the end cap wrench....no need to sock it on there....
Oh, and I take the filter from below, sliding it down towards the driver side a bit and then pushing it through by a coolant hose...

Its one less special step the factory had to worry about, and its bolted in, so if you have a 180 its very easy to get rid of
