Special Tool for rear lower balljoint?

Anyone replace their rear lower balljoint can provide me with a link to the special tool they used?

I've been unable to find anything other then a $300+ dollar E90 specific kit from Baum.

http://www.baumtools.com/shop/rear-a...ols-p-255.html

The ball joint is 47mm OD, I did find a tool for the e36/e46/Z4 thats for their 45mm OD ball joint on eBay and I messaged the seller to see if its close enough to work.

And all the universal kits I've seen on amazon etc don't have the proper cup sizes.

I went on BMW ISTA-D and found the special tools numbers, emailed the dealer to get the real PN and pricing.

I also found this special tools catalog PDF which gave me a full part number but its only $30 bucks so I doubt its the entire tool most likely just the cups specific to this ball joint.
