...and in case you fell like doing the job yourself there is an excellent guide (Audipages/Paul Waterloo) in the "Engine Bay Repairs" Sticky at the top of this Engine Bay thread section (You will need a 10mm hex drive and a 36mm socket which arent always in all DIYers toolboxes)

and a 6mm hex to drain the filter housing

The 36mm socket is here

Part number for the genuine oil filter is 021 115 562A, retail is 15.28 + vat. When looking at cheaper aftermarket parts, remember the genuine filter always comes with o-rings and seals to do the job properly

... well, of course the 6mm drive goes without saying - I thought everybody had one
