Default Oil change

I have always done oil changes on my cars every 6 months. Is doing the Sport easy enough?
I read they take 8 litres?
If so, where is the best place to source the oil and filter.
And is there your normal drain bolt on the sump (I have only owned and serviced ULP cars previously)
And lastly, do I need to replace sump bolt and or washer.
Thanks for any advice

Edit: Service manual says 5w30 ACEA classification C1,C2,C3, or C4.
Happy for brand suggestions?

I used Penrite Enviro+ Full Synthetic C3 5W30. Sump takes 7 litres so you will need the 10 litre pack.
Filter is a Ryco Z456
Normal drain bolt in sump. You have to drop the front bash plate to access the oil filter on the front of the engine as well as the big plastic splash guard further back to get to the sump plug.
Remember the steel sump plug screws into an aluminium casting, so go easy when you tighten it up so you do not strip the thread. I used the same washer with no problems, but probably will replace it next time.
The handbook says not to overfill the sump, so fill with say 6 litres, then top up carefully after running the engine to fill the filter and get up oil pressure.

When I get my scheduled service from mm I have them provide me with a a mm oil filter and washer for the 7500k service that I perform. On previous cars I have had problems with aftermarket filters (ie ineffective non return valves) and so now stick to oem filters. Also make sure you use the correct low ash oil.
