Where to Buy Spark Plug Socket Locally

Is there any retail store that sells a spark plug socket for the N54 engine, or do I have to purchase the specialty one online? I am located in Orange County, CA.

On a side note, I've noticed everyone talking about the socket required being a 14 mm. But I have a new OEM plug and a 6-point 15 mm fits perfectly on it, but the 6-point 14 mm doesn't go on at all. What is the explanation for this?

Thanks in advance!

Got mine from ebay, really nice socket. Not the oem one.
It's supposed to be a 12 point ( if you have those 12 point Bosch plugs) so a larger 6 point might fit.

and local to you to.

I paid $15 shipped for a "Koch" one only because I should have the 12 point plugs. I haven't done them yet.

Thanks for the post. Unfortunately they don't sell items available for pickup. I ordered from there anyway but will just have to wait to put in my plugs. I have horrible misfiring with my JB4 and I am trying to troubleshoot.
