You don't get oil on yourself when removing the filter can be done a number of ways, the easiest two would be punching a hole at the bottom of the filter to drain it before removal, and the other easiest way is to loosen the filter so you will be able to unscrew it with your hands, then use a plastic bag to unscrew and catch the filter and oil. I use the bag method.

FYI, subaru's do have the biggest drain bolts, 20 x 1.5. The next biggest size I know of are some Toyotas and Mitsus with 18 x 1.5.
