my plastic tool broke.. if the engine is warm at all when you're pulling with it, the plastic starts to bend.. so... i bought the metal one.. it slips on much easier than the plastic one, and you "know" when there is a solid connection made.. germanautoparts.com has one for $39: http://www.germanautoparts.com/main2.php?action=Tools&input[model%

i didn't get mine there, but the one i have is similar, only it has a T bar handle welded onto it instead of that blue thing...

The metal puller with the blue plastic top is a factory vw part (that's the one I have, well worth the money!). I believe the one beenana has is the Techtonics unit. I don't think you could go wrong with either unit...

You can get the OEM plastic puller from the dealership for like $13, or you can spend $40 for the metal one. But really, how often are you going to be doing your plugs? Save the extra cash for some
or something!

My plastic one broke after I pulled 3 plug wires off. It's a pain in the butt to get those suckers off without the tool. If you're gonna have the car for awhile buy the metal one.
