Default Magnetic Drain Plugs

Hello all - I have Dimple brand magnetic drain plugs for the engine oil pan and the manual transmission. I carry the M14x1.5 for the oil drain - this will fit all TDI's. And for the newer 6 speed manuals - I have a magnetic drain plug for both styles depending on vintage. If you have the earlier 6 speed manual from pre mid 2010 and the drain plug is black plastic, you have the M24x1.5. If you have an aluminum drain plug with inverted hex head, and your vehicle is mid 2010 build or newer, you have the M22x1.5. I will have free shipping, all products are made in the USA, and the Dimple plug utilizes a very powerful neodymium magnet that does not degrade over time or temperature increase. I am throwing this out to see if there is any interest and how much. The more people I have interested, the lower I can offer a price and put together a group buy. Please email me at trknctry@yahoo.com if interested and of which product. Also feel free to contact me with questions. I am currently utilizing plugs in both my engine and transmission and decided to spread the word based on my positive experience because in the past, I have found most magnetic drain plugs to be cheaply made and of poor quality.
Thanks - David
Neodymium

Great, thank you! Unfortunately I do not know what size is in each application. Can you send me the drain plug size?? I believe it has o be the M22 or M24, I don't think they used any other size.

Unfortunatly I don't know the size either, at least not till I take it out. But I'm not willing to swap plugs after a fluid change (mess, loss of fluid, time, etc.).

Also, a price would be good to know.

Hey guys,
First I appreciate the interest!! As I mentioned to start, I am trying to work the bugs out on this and possibly put a group buy together. So far, it has been low so at this point I am going to hold off. Sorry, my thought was if enough were interested, I could get them down to less than 24.95 - that is what they retail for straight from the manufacturer. That is where I bought them, it is actually a good deal when you factor in free shipping and you see the quality. Again, I have to state - I didn't make these but was potentially trying to put a group buy together to save us all a little. I don't know what others have experienced, but for me personally, finding a good magnetic drain plug was difficult so I thought since I did find one and had a good experience, I would share!!! Google Dimple magnetic drain plugs -

Good luck!!!!!!
And elcamino - x2 I wouldn't want to either - that is the other problem I'm facing is finding an accurate 'application' guide so to speak for the older model stuff.
