There`s a Snapon socket that will work. I think Brandon Wheaton uses one. Also has an 11/16" European socket for motorcycles and M cars. The problem with a standard socket is that they are too thick....the O.D. interferes in the head. I took a standard deep socket and turned it down on the outside (cheapest). A $3.50 Taiwan 6-point deep socket from Auto Zone (turned down) is plenty strong enough.
88 ///M3 on a budget

My trunk tool kit is missing the plug socket. What size will fit? Pep Boys? I would rather not spend the 4 million they want at the dealership.
