My dealer gave me a 19mm hex bolt because I didn't want to use the torx but the crush washer was not attached and looked like Ash's.

The crush washer that came attached to my ECS magnetic drain bolt was just a flat standard aluminum crush washer. That went in the trash and I installed one that looks like Ash's pic.

Those were actually the older style ones, but that's what I used to use too (bolt with the washer on it already from the dealer)

I'd have rather had a hex head bolt. Dealer parts man told me it had been superseded by the torx bolt. No worries I have a good set of torx bits.

I've reused the same OEM torx bolt several times with no issues. I get a few drops immediately after draining and changing the oil, but I snug it up a little, then warm up the car, and it doesn't have an issue after that.

Used the T45 bolt & an actual crush washer from dealer parts counter. It was donut shaped with a machined side and flat side. Installed it flat side against oil pan

Got it hand tight - a few drips. After running the car and snugging it up a second time so far so good. no drips.
