Unhappy Oil Filter Removal

Has anyone figured out how to remove the oil filter without spilling the oil? It is not terribly bad but still annoys the heck out of me. I am using Malleys if that makes any difference.

I stuff rags in from under neath and do it as quickly as possible, bad design in my opinion.
if some one has a better way please share.

Oil pan underneath, let her drip, finish the oil change job, spray GUNK on the affected area from above and below after you're done, hose it off from top and bottom and enjoy your car.

Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

before you start to unscrew the filter, take a screwdriver and hammer it into the center of the filter. this will let air into the filter which will drain most of the oil from it...

it will still make a mess though.

I disliked the inverted oil filter so much I finally did something about it. I installed a remote oil filter where the oil filter is hanging down properly and is lower in the chassis for better access from below. That took care of that silly design by the Porsche Guys.

I was for a long time puncturing the oil filter with a big screw driver until I found out that doing that allows allot of the debris from the pierced oil filter to drain back into the engine oil passages (not so good).
