hi guys

just need some confirmation here, i think this is the plug but its really tight, it takes a 10mm hex bit. I used an allen key but think i might need a bigger tool... any tips?

the plug in the centre, left is towards front of car

this is where it is under the car, its not covered by any splash guard.

Yes.That is the plug.No need to buy any other tool.Get a 10mm to 12mm spanner to use it as a lever with the 10mm hex.
On a related note two box-end wrenches can be used in a similar manner in other applications.
The box end on one will kinda lock onto the open end of the other one. Works well for extra leverage.
Two wrenches working together on the allen wrench might be helpful in removing your drain plug, since a 10mm wrench might be kinda small.
