Our XC Barina SRi is full of torx headed bolts, self tappers and socket heads both inside, outside and under the hood. Is there a basic brand/set that someone can recommend and like your "normal" sockets is it better to have more faces in the socket scratch

Cheers
Ron

Not sure bout brands or anything, but having more faces means more surfaces at which the pressure is applied to. A bit like axle splines, the more splines, the better the load is spread across.

hey Ron I bought mine from Dick Smith Electronics for $15.95 the set, has proved to be invaluable to me as the VT's also have quite a few .....

Thanks Andy and I reckon I've got about 3 of those sets over the years lol but what I should have added was that I am after 1/2" torx sockets.
