I'm looking to get one and have no idea what I'm looking for.There are some on ebay, however I'm unsure what to go for.There are 3/8",3/4",1/2".What do I need for the 355 and are there better places to get one from?

You'll need a 1/2 drive for wheel bolts/nuts,if you buy secondhand get it calibrated,you dont want ye wheels falling off,ALLWAYS RE-CHECK YOUR WHEEL BOLTS AFTER A RUN,AND DO IT NEXT DAY COLD/BEFORE YOU USE THE CAR.

should do mate. its no fun to have a wheel come away from the hub when youve been doing 165. it was 1500 miles since last tightened.and a true brown trouser moment.
