M88/S38 spark plug tool.

This could be very useful to anyone not having the very expensive telescopic spark plug tool.

BMW have a special tool which has a magnet inside to hold the plug and is an 18mm. hex. (to fit the "M" plugs). You just need a 3/8" drive extension bar.

The new part number is:- 83 30 0 491 127. Cost is £22.30 + VAT. which is appreciably cheaper than the telescopic one!
They are ALWAYS rustier than you thought!!!!!!

Thanks Ron

I suspect the previous owner hasn't used the correct plugs in mine as it works with a 16mm socket!!! Something i should look into.
