which socket for oil filter cover cap

So I'm seeing 2 things (both from bimmer world)

Looking around I think it's a 27, Canadian tire does a set of extra large sockets & oil cap removers for around the same price as one of bimmerworlds ones (29 bucks)

so I'll pick up a set, the set also has a 27 and a 32

My car's filter cap uses a shallow 32mm socket.
