VW rabbit brake rotor replacement

Hello,
I have something that might help anyone out with replacing there rotors and dealing with the joys of German engineering.
First, stripping your security bolt, these bolts seem to be designed to strip very easily for your convenience. I took the rest off and welded the key on and thankfully it came off.
The 14 mm 12 point brake caliper mounting bracket bolts! Why can I not find this information anywhere? Why do I find only 12 mm 12 points? What is a 12 point?

I had to cut off most of the bit to fit the socket and the wrench in between the upper control arm and the back of the heat shield of the brake. Every time I broke loose the brake caliper mounting bracket 12 point 14 mm bolts I thought I just broke the tork wrench.
Good Luck
