Sump plug query.

Was all set for oil change on the 156 2.0JTS (03) today, on getting the car on the ramps found sump plug appeared to be rounded, however on closer inspection it seems sump plug is actually unusual "Torx" type fitting, does anyone have an idea of the size I need, or a supplier of a key/tool that will undo it please?

Cheers iainfm, think you're right, further research has led me to the same conclusion, just off to get one/some this morning. Further 'research' tells me the only people who benefit from these 'anti-tamper' fittings arethe people who make the adaptors.
