Help needed to ID socket for N55 MT output flange net

I searched and found that the "normal" nut for the manual trans rear output shaft nut requires a 6-point 30mm socket, so I bought one. But apparently they changed things with the N55 as my '11 E90 has a nut that looks like the one attached. Anyone know the size for this (assuming it's a 12-point socket).

I ended up going with this 36mm 12 point axle nut socket I got from O'Reilly's for $27.

It worked great and that sucker was really on there!
