What sizes of Torx screw heads are most used

I am looking at starting a specialty tool Kit for my 2004 E320 4matic and was wondering what are the most common sizes of Torx bits I will need

Depends on what your doing, but t30 is used extensively throughout the engine bay. T20 and t40 can be found on interior and body components. MB also likes to use inverted torx bolts a lot. E8, E10, and E12 are the most common.

You may find that the total price of three or four pieces exceeds the price of a set of seven or eight pieces.

You'll need them all.

In addition to bits, you'll need some sockets for external torx head bolts.

Great source for this stuff is http://www.wihatools.com
