    Can anyone recommend a basic tool set for use with the Vec.

    In particular I need Torx bolts or screws for removing a front bumper.

    Any help gratefully received!!

    I agree... Aldi do quite a reasonable Torx set, though I forget how much I paid... certainly cheap anyway.
    Just used mine to adjust all the doors a touch, so I dont get any wind coming past the door seals.
