On my car (VW Jetta), the filter's up top. I've seen these sort of extractors talked about on TDIclub's forums - the main brand bandied about is a Pella Oil Extractor.

Up here in Canada, I've seen the same sort of device at Princess Auto... I've been thinking about getting one, since a few of us at my workplace will occasionally do minor car work (like oil changes) after hours on our vehicles.
Current mod: Skidplate/Undertray for my MkIV Jetta. Next mod: CAD drawing for skidplate so other Jetta/Golf drivers can make one too!
