Default Oil Filter Location - New Passat 2.0T

Can someone tell me where the oil filter is located on the 2006/2007 Passat 2.0T? I searched topside &underneath and can't find it? Have you ever changed one?

Thanks guys. Actually I found it through a tip from a local auto parts dealer. I did the oil/filter change.

Now I'm wondering why they went back to the replaceable cartridge insert. Reminds me of way back when (50's vintage cars).
