I think I paid around a fiver for a Snap-On socket. Use a half-metre breaker bar and job done. Mind you, be careful this doesn't happen. Once I'd got the normal overtightend bolts out I moved on to the BMW locking bolts. And then this happened:
Mickey-Mouse metal and over-tighted with an impact gun.
Right pain in the arse that would be on the hard shoulder of the M6.
