Greetings all on my first Lexus forum post....

I've just purchased a genuine (Toyota) oil filter for my new-to-me 2011 IS250 F Sport. It came with the paper element and a large O-ring. Some vendors on eBay show an additional white plastic fitting like this:

What is the purpose of this thing? Is it critical for an oil change or just easier?

Also, I've found this special oil filter housing removal tool on eBay:

Is this tool necessary to remove the oil filter housing, or does it just make life a bit easier?

Thanks.
