Oil Change Shopping List!

Hello - All!

I have had the dealers change my oil on my 2012 for the whole time I have owned the thing, but I have moved away now and cannot find another place to do it within any reasonable distance.

So I am wondering if anything special is needed besides...


-Kit includes 5qts of oil, filter, and a 'crush washer'

I will also need....
-Oil pan (to catch it all)
-Filter Wrench <- Need help on this.

For the wrench. Does anyone have any recommendation on what to use to get the filter off/on?

Anything I have missed?

The kit looks good. I go to my local Advanced Auto and get a K&N filter and 5 qts of Mobile 1 Racing 4T full synth cus its a few blocks down the street, and the price for all that is similar to the kit shown here. I like the K&N filters cus it has an exposed 17mm nut (same size as the oil pan nut) so I dont need a dedicated filter wrench. But yea 5.00 filter wrench...
