magnetic drain plug for an 09

I looked several places for a magnetic drain plug for my 09, including ebay.
Everything I find is for 10 or greater. Did they change size and thread after the 09's?
Anyone know where I can find one?

Since it is the exact same engine, the drainplug from a newer V will work on the first gen V

I have a strong 2" neodymium bar magnet stuck to the bottom of my oil filter that (hopefully) snags any metal shavings passing through the system. It may also help with the traffic light sensor wires too... it's a pretty strong little piece of gear.
