Has anyone had issues with the 6mm hex plugs starting to strip out? Went to change mine today with the correct hex drive and the front sump came out fine but the rear must have been over torqued because it wouldn't budge and then started to strip. I want to have a new plug on hand to replace this with before I complete the oil change. Lucky for me i didn't remove the front plug, only loosened it. I haven't seen this before as my 545 had the same hex plug and I have done many mid-interval oil changes with no issues.
