How to change my Octavia's oil filter?

I was going to give my automobile a service, but before I start, I was wondering is the oil filter hard to gain access to, as there are two pipes running above it; it's a 2011 Skoda Octavia 1.6 TDI.

Any advice would be great

Thanks

Does the Kia Stinger need lots of servicing?

I notice in the detailed UK specs for the Kia Stinger (which otherwise appears like a wonderful automobile), it says, both for the 2.0-litre and 3.0-litre petrol engines, that the service interval is a mere six months. This seems weird when many new automobiles with powerful engines have a two-year service interval, at least for the first service. What do you think?

Thanks Philip
