You most likely will find that the plastic undershield is difficult to remove, my car has been maintained by a Citroen dealer within the warranty period and found that they don't bother to replace badly rusted and mangled clips with new ones. (Or taking care not to rip the shield itself).
I ordered a bunch of these with M6 threat and some cap screws and washers, they are inexpensive and will save you time to put the under shield back on (and off the next time).

Bosch oil filter £8.63
Judging from past experience (including my own) with previous C4 generations, it may not be a good idea to put a different filter than the original from PSA. This may not be valid for the Cactus and I haven't changed oil since I got the car, but what happened with my previous C4 was aftermarket filters with different design caused an "Oil pressure too low" error after some time. Again, it could be different with the Cactus now, but if that happens to you, at least you know where to start inspecting.

Sorry I don't have a link for you but just search for "M6 threaded panel fasteners" in your search machine or ebay and it will show up.
