    What is your favorite specialty BMW tool?

    For me it is my pressure bleeder for brake fluid. It has saved me so much in time and money over the years. It makes fluid change a snap! :D

    Although I also use my radio tool a lot to remove my radios!

    I have a spark plug torque attachment that goes between my extension and socket.

    My arm has never been calibrated.
    Although I do use this method.

    When I feel I want to tighten one more for good measure, I don't.

    Shim installer for my S54 engine. If you drop one of those puppies in the head you're done.

    My ezCarlift is my most prized tool! www.ezcarlift.com to see....

    Right now on wwwgotogroupbuy.com the carlift is discounted according to how many sign up for one. I've had mine for 3 years now and it is great!

    Cheers!

    I'd like one as finely tuned as Paul's. Min calibration is not up to Cherman Prezizion. But works ok on old British cars.<G>
