BMW Jack kit. Comes with tq wrench?

I was reading on a few sites that this kit comes with a tq wrench.
I see a socket wrench in the pictures but don't see it as a tq wrench which will let you know when you have applied the necessary tq needed.

Anyone have one of these kits?

It comes with a lug wrench, not a torque wrench, at least in the kit I saw there (for me, you link never resolved, but I did look at their site).

Should come with a standard wrench, rather than a torque wrench.

Same thought as me, but supposedly the black handle wrench has 130nm written on it, not sure how it can be a tq wrench though when its angled.

I have that kit and it actually comes with a torque wrench. The fourth pic in the link shows what looks like a regular lug wrench, but its actually a torque wrench built in.

You cant actually set it to a specific torque because there are no numbers on it and the handle doesnt turn at all. But I know that its a torque wrench because when I used it to tighten the lugs it clicked like a real torque wrench would and it wouldnt let me tighten any further. Im guessing that its made to start clicking when it hits 90 lbs of torque, which I believe is what BMW recommends. I cant verify this though.

Also, the socket which comes with the wrench doesnt fit snuggly on the lugs. You have to hold the wrench in place to get a tight fit.
