Can I borrow you 30mm Deep Thin Wall Socket in SF Bay Area

Been trying to order one for two weeks from different suppliers. Finally got ahold of SIR tool in Chico where they make the specific BMW tool #3025 (30mm deep thin wall socket). They say they won't have any new ones for 3 weeks.

I need one now as I am trying to swap the seals in my new (to me) 4 speed transmission. Need to get it in and test before the April 7th Autocross at Candlestick.

Can I borrow yours? I'm in San Francisco.

Had the same issue years ago....bought a deep well 30mm Snap-On, took it to a machine shop and had them chuck it up on a lathe and turned it down a bit. Were I closer you could borrow mine.

I think I bought mine from BMW, it is a "special tool".

And to Snakedriver's point, you can take a 30mm and grind it down on a bench grinder. It does not take much.
