oil filter on /5

Ok, I can see the filter, what's the trick to removing it? I hav removed the cover plate, the 17 mm bolt, the plate that it was holding on....what next?
Shop manual on order, this is so basic its embarrasing, but then bmw engineers have done some pretty bizzare things over the years. Whadaya need a bmw special tool to remove it? Thanks,

I just use a small section of a coat hanger and bend a hook in the end. Sometimes if the filter has been in for a long period of time they are harder to remove. Just be sure you get out the o-ring on the bottom of the filter before you install a new one.
