Ive got a complete box set I bought a few years ago which has been used on various cars and it was not expensive. Far better tool than the universal claws and compression bands. Always work in difficult positions and filters seem to be positioned in such a way that make these tools the most accessible.
By coincidence just changed my oil and filter after I came home today while the engine was warm, using a Sealey extractor, which I have had for years and worth its weight in gold. Takes about three quarters of an hour without getting the hands dirty. and it probably leaves about half a litre in the sump.
I change the oil every 5000 miles using fully synthetic and occasionally drop it via the sump plug in case you ask.
I don't know whether it is a fact but perhaps changing the oil at frequent intervals might stave off the DPF problem.
That's my contribution for what its worth.
