Just buy a 36mm socket from the store foer like $5 and use you rachet. Nothing fancy is needed so long it fits your torque wrench.

or just get an M3 - the socket is 13mm

I have no idea why BMW did that - sucks.

1" and 7/16ths is a perfect fit. I had one in my 3/4 inch drive set.

Yeah, sorry forgot to mention that. I made the same mistake also. I ordered it online, with shipping and tax it came out to approx $18.00.

Ya I Was Suprised That Pep Boys Had It. I Guess Most Auto Parts Stores Carry It. And A Quart Of Oil At The Dealer Is Up The 7 Bucks.
