Torque Wrench Digital vs Standard needs & review

Newer cars seems to have more stretch bolts everywhere and torque specs that requires additional angle.

For weekend/DIY er, what would be decent Digital Wrench brand that don't break my wallet and covers most of the stretch bolt torque specs for the suspension, engine, and tranny on 335i/135i ?

I'm looking at GearWrench and AC Delco specifically, as they seem to be the mid tiers. Anyone has good experience with Harbor Freight products? They look like very reasonably priced. Wish can afford Snap on, but it is out of my range.

I've read reviews and watch you tube alot on this topic, just want to get some info specifically from BMW folks.
