The filter on my Audi 2.7T is always stuck on from heat. I have broken numerous wrenches and had to buy a heavy duty wrench that I could use a cheater bar on... imagine that yea. But, good news is, someone told me try to slip a piece of sand paper between the filter wrench and filter and try it that way... First time I tried it, with no cheater bar, came right off. I faced the grit toward the filter. Cut a strip about 1" wide and 6 or so inches long and put it between the wrench once I had it over the filter. Turned it tight and gave it a quick tug, came off. You should try that.
