2005 325I auto transmission help

I am trying to remove the fil plug on my 2005 bmw 325i auto transmission.GM bult transmission
the drain plug looks to be the same size,all info I can find on the web list 2 different sizes.
t45 and t50 I think, I dont want to buy the wrong size.
What size is it, my 40 torx fits but seams loose,It wont loosen and I dont want to put too much pressure on it because it seams a bit small.

gona do 2 changes with redline fluid
car has 115K

Use your head....if a 40 fits, but is a little loose, then it stands to reason that a 45 is probably good, no ????

Did my fluid and filter a week later.
Drain and fill size is a T45, got a allen style set at advanced auto for 12.99 with many torq sizes up to T50.
fluid looked ok.
did a filter fluid change than a drain and refill with redline D4.
No real performance differance,
