Spark plug tool does not fit....?

I might be missing something but the spark plug socket does not fit the new spark plugs....

So this is what I purchased:

- burgertuning spark plug tool
- Bosch spark plug #FR7NPP332

I can fit the new Bosch plugs into a 16mm socket, while the burgertuning tool is smaller like a 14mm.

Did I get the right tool? Any idea?

That's what I figured but I wasn't sure if there are different size spark plugs. Does this tool only work on oem plugs from factory? Use it one time only but that doesn't make sense though.

On burgertuning's site, I see only one spark plug tool. I checked the Bosch plugs with the part number and they're correct too.

335 and 328 have different spark plugs so maybe the tool you got is for 335

Guess I didn't need the special tool after all...found a spark plug socket in my tool chest that worked!

It is the 16mm size. I have a normal Mastercraft spark plug and other socket set which has both the 14mm and 16mm plug sockets...

Found this FR7NPP332 specs.
