Rick, I bought mine from Hazet for ~20 euros I think. Hazet #4466-2

There is no way I would try to change the plugs without the 12pt 14mm deep socket. Also buy your plugs from a dealer and not aftermarket. It will help to have a few long extensions handy as well.

I would buy the socket. It made changing my plugs much easier.
