Metric tools FTW. You can never find that 9mm wrench when you need it.
Great job keeping your cars in shape and wrenching it yourself.
It's 7mm 6-point on the box end for bleeder screws and 11mm on the line wrench for the metal fittings for brake lines. I only use it every couple of years or so, but because of the bends it's easy to find in the drawer.
Does anyone make a modern equivalent? It's so damn handy I wouldn't want to be without it!

Probably not a surprise if you saw the GTI thread but with lack of space and time to keep it in tip-top shape, it's time for someone else to enjoy the car.
Anyone who's followed this thread knows how meticulously I've maintained it and if you're interested in it, shoot me a PM.
For anyone local who wants to see it, I'm planning on driving it to Radwood on Saturday assuming I'm no longer sick by then.
Otherwise I'll likely submit it to BaT and see how that goes. Currently at 116k miles.
The wife nixed it. Thank you for your prompt reponses, Kiz. Apparently, between having my 987, S3, E28 535i, and my friend's Mk7 GTI at our house, along with my wife's car, and my general cheapness with other expenditures over the past 8-10 months as I started my own firm, my wife will divorce me (or so she threatens) if I acquire another hunk of unreliable German sheet metal.
Best of luck Kiz! Be sure to link us to the BAT auction!
EDIT: And I already reserved the license plate "UNBNT M"

If it wasn’t already breaking the reliable E39 M5 Id be tempted.
