Front Brake Caliper Bolts - 10mm HEX/Allen or Torx 55

Help guys,
On many DIY for 135i and E90 front brake pad change, they said to use 10MM HEX/Allen key to remove the caliper bolt.

When I tried 10mm HEX key, it doesn't go in. But I got a T55 and it fits and I also noticed the star indents too.

Any body got technical specs on the front Caliper bots? Is it 10mm HEX or Torx T55?

Thanks in advance

Never mind - found the answer. The proper way to remove the front caliper is by removing the 2 big bolts behind the caliper.
