After owning many different makes of cars and just doing simple maintenance I have never felt the need to own a torque wrench. I always thought that they were for Real Mechanics - which I am certainly not!
But now as a serious MB owner I feel that I ought to get one, as quite a few of the basic items on my car have designated torque values.
e.g. Spark plugs 28Nm, Oil filter 25Nm, Wheel nuts 110Nm
Surprisingly, not many budget tools in the market span this range - most fit either the top or the bottom end only. I do not want to buy two, but I think that the Sealy AK 624 would just about fit my bill.
Anyone got experience of buying a torque wrench?
