E46 M3 oil drain plug alternative

I remember not too long ago someone posted a picture or part number for an alternative oil drain plug for an E46 M3.

I can't find that post.

All I remember is that the oil drain plug had the hex socket in the middle but also had a hex head that you could fit a socket over.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

Go to the dealership and ask for part # 11131273093. <--hex head so you can use socket set. Better at getting the torque right.

M3s originally come with part # 07119904550.

also uuc has a magnetic drain plug with the same features, but rocco warned me against using it as he said these have a tenancy to snap. i dont believe this applies to the factory part.

Thanks. My experience has been 50/50 with them. Had an awesome experience with a plug called Superplug but they aren't in business anymore and their website takes them to a different manufacturer.

The other plug snapped in two as I was tightening it into the oil pan. Luckily there was still some thread left so I could remove it with some needle nose pliers.

I went OEM with this plug.

Cheers.
