Remote Oil Filter - 124 Body - 300E

Has anyone researched or installed a remote oil filter set-up for our 124 body 300Es? I cannot consistently change my oil filter without extra oil going to the floor. I say consistently because sometimes giving the filter a slight turn to "break the air lock" and letting the filter drain into it's mounting flange does the trick and sometimes it doesn't.

Seems these vehicles would be an ideal candidate for a remote oil filter installation - with the filter positioned upright instead of upside down. I have searched the database and cannot find where this topic has been covered in the past.

Appreciate any comments.
