Thirty plus bolts to do that and then there's four bolts on the filter cover. No power tools are to be used to remove / install filter cover. Once you pop the cover off it loses about a 1/2pt or so of fluid. Remove old filter, install new one and reassemble everything.

Now, if you want to "track" that new C8? You have to add 2 additional quarts of fluid to the t/a at ~$40-$50/qt. But to get to the fill plug that's another story!
All kinds of stuff has to come off the back of the engine compartment to get to the big engine air intake box which has to come off so the top of the t/a is exposed so you can add those extra 2 quarts. Total fill change is 11.6 qts, not sure if that includes the extra 2 qts if your tracking the car.

Makes working on you CTS-V a piece 'o cake!
Oh man.... I see bubbles popping all around me.

I got one shot at my end of life crisis car and the Lamborghini does not have a back window.

Always wanted a Porsche.

I thought Lambos had a camera that was like a rearview mirror?

Nope. That’s actually the new Corvette and some other GM vehicles.

I always wanted a Porsche. Got a Cayman and realize now what the fuss was all about. I love me those 911s, but modern ones are too big. Who has $250K for a GT3RS?

I've driven a few Caymans, Boxsters, and 911s, though never owned one. Fun to drive but I don't know if I could live with one as my only daily driver. I know plenty of people do, just not me. I think a BMW is a more comfy / practical daily while still being fun, and the Porsche is more of a weekend twisty / track fun car.

Had a buddy with an Elise as a daily. What an annoying car to get in/out of.

It's a piece of cake once you learn how. There is a technique to it.

Every car does though if you think about it. The technique is just different for elise/exige. And it's not difficult unless you have some some type of physical limitation.
