OIL Change Advice
So I just purchased a 2013 Evoque gas not diesel and I enjoy the vehicle. I am looking for basic information.
How often should the oil be changed?
Does anyone service the vehicle themselves? I am a DIY type person.
What type of oil and filter?
Where would one purchase the filter?
Any and all advice is appreciated.

Welcome to the forum.
If you look under the Evoque Maintenance heading, where you started this thread, you will see a "sticky thread" that lists many different filters, oil, air, etc., by several manufactures for the Evoque. Oil must be a full synthetic. Castrol Edge is the Land Rover recommended oil, and is used by the dealers.
No big deal to change your own oil, remove about six bolts to drop the front skid plate, and all is exposed.
Drain plug is easy to get at, and the filter is mounted vertically right in front. Only tricky part, is you have to push a radiator hose out of the way to get at the filter.
