According to the link below it should be using T40;

According to BMW part number, there is no information;
Torx screw - 24 11 7 552 108 - M6X28,5

According to the bolts on my sump pan on the car, it is T27.

Reason for this question, when I already know that T27 is what I have on my vehicle - I am planning to replace the pan and oil on the my trans and 14 bolts seems to have its torx teeth #@#$#@ by previous INDY's, so I will need to replace these bolts. The new bolts which I will buy, I need to know the size of Torx bit so I can by that tool as my hollow Torx bit T27 broke while I was trying to un-screw the pan

Also, what tools was used to open the fill plug, I know it needs 8mm Hex socket, but mine won't fit since there is very less space and the thread above says to use L-shape tool, what is L-shape tool?

Guys, just in case the above post is confusing, I would like to know following;
1. What is the torx size on the bolts that hold the plastic transmission oil sump pan, T27 or T40 (why am I asking the question? -> read above post)
2. Is there a socket available that will fit the small area to undo the filler plug on the transmission? (So, I have only read about the L-shape tool but those do not let you torque it to specification and I can't find any 8mm socket that is in total length of 30-35mm as that is all the space there is near the transmission).
