Just did my first DIY oil change

"Just be prepared for a LOT of fluid to come out at a fast rate."

Ditto on that, I use a metal dishpan for oil changes and it filled it up almost to the rim. It will help to get a cap style oil fiter wrench that you can use with a ratchet. There isn't a lot of clearance for a strap style oil filter wrench and if you are anal about the proper torque for the filter housing, you will need it to use a torque wrench anyway.
