Magnetic Drain Plugs

Magnetic Drain Plugs
I am planning on draining and replacing my Bimmer's oil, tranny and diff fluids and then changing out the stock drain plugs for magnetic ones.

I've seen BavAuto carries magnetic drain plugs for oil, tranny, and diff for about 29.95 - 34.95 a piece made by Dimple.

ECS Tuning and Tuner Motorsports also carry oil magnetic oil drain plugs at 9.95 - 12.95 each.

Can any one who has used these or any other magnetic drain plug comment on the quality and performance of these plugs. I was wondering what the differences are.
(I've read elsewhere BavAuto can be overpriced at time)


***I posted this on Zpost put didn't get too much response/visibility, so I figured I would repost on a larger forum. I apologize for any inconvenience.

sorry to chime in so late, i got it for both diff and oil drain. I love it.. its so strong that I can't get it into the drain hole correctly, it keeps drawing itself to any metal piece near the drain hole. But once its in, its good. no phun intended

i have the bav auto one
