Except when you take the car to a tyre shop of rip shit and bust merchants who use a 3/4 drive impact wrench to do all the wheel nuts up

2nd hand car yards are worse, especially those not set up with a full dealer for shop. With my CJ had wheel issues when I first got it, one wheel had 3 different nut sizes on it, including one I could not find a socket to fit. Too bad if I got a flat on the side of the road before the issue was addressed.

Almost every normal car needs the wheel nuts around 100. The workshop manual for these cars says 98 +/- 10. They were ridiculously overtight from the Oompa Loompas at the compliance workshop.

New headlights in from DPP! They even included the Profile bluetooth powered angel eye colour shifting kit! Can't wait to see how they turn out when fitted, will be selling the Audi style lights I currently have in Image
