AN adapters for M60 oil lines

I know I came across the -12 AN adapters somewhere, but I didn't save it and now I can't find them. All I come across when searching is the -10 stuff for the 6 cylinders. Does anyone know who it is that sells the V8 ones?

These are the 6cyl ones in case you don't know what I'm talking about.

I ended up welding AN bungs directly to a X3 oil manifold. check out my build thread.
If anyone feels like making a proper adapter to the oil filter housing, shut up and take my money. i welded AN bungs to the oil filter housing plugs with the o rings on them. and it sucks.

I did an s62 swap into an e34 last year, and one of the worst parts was getting those dumb lines to work. I ended up braising some AN fittings onto cut factory lines, and that was like my 4th attempt to make it work.

There used to be some reasonably priced adapters on US ebay, I don't see them anymore. There's some expensive ones oversees.

I used AN fittings welded onto an X5 plate on the engine side, and brazed fittings onto the hard line ends on the filter side. It's been 7 years and 45k miles without any issues. I know it's not as nice as a purpose built 1 piece adapter, but it works, it's cheap, and you'll never really see them anyway.

I had the numbers mixed up in my head, -10 is the correct size for the V8 still (was thinking 12mm). Its the o-ring side that doesn't work with the regular adapters, as the V8 is a 14mm oring and the 6cyls are 13.4mm.
