Air Impact Wrench

Changing to the winter wheels on the X5 tonight and with a smallish compressor in the garage I reckon I should save a bit of muscle work and get an air impact wrench.

Don't want to spend too much and don't need a load of sockets as will really only be used for wheel changes. Anyone any recommendations or advice?

To users of these I assume you set how tight you want it to go, don't want it wrecking any bolts by trying to go too tight or breaking them?

Managed to get 3 wheels changed tonight, one had a puncture recently and was put back on by a tyre shop, they must have used mega tools to tighten it as I couldn't shift it at all and ended up cracking for wheel change socket. Its going back to tyre shop tomorrow for loosening but would like an air wrench for myself to do the job in future.
