Basic tools recomendations

Not sure if this is the right forum but my questions is what you guys might recommend for a basic E92 DIY tool inventory. I have a 10 piece metric socket set and a small assortment of individual metric wrenches. Sears is having a 50% off sale this weekend and I want to complete an inventory of what I might need for various DIY projects on my ride.

Anything you guys can recommend for must have tools for our cars would be great.

Thanks for anything you can offer.

You'll want some torx sockets- I've seen guides here calling for T10, 20, 25, 27, 30, 40, and 50. Also an extension for some of the more hard to get spaces.

Yes, definitely get a torx set. If you're changing your own wheels, you'll need a 17 mm deep socket and possibly a small extension as well.
