Complaining?!?! C'mon! Probably just me...(and if I don't already own them)
-But I don't consider a: <1%
of a vehicle's price-tag an expensive outlay for the proper tools for that task... Safety First!!
-This means you haven't purchased them...Yet
-Or is it: Reliance on the dealership's "trained mechanics" having the tools/knowledge...
Are they going to be by your side on track-day, though?
-I'm sure you know
Don't forget about having a family member/friend for: Breaking/braking/torqueing that bothersome nut!
It's a shame OEM's don't include the specialty-tools for certain trim-packages! Although your need of specialty-tools differs...
-I well remember the hullabaloo over the specialty-tools-requirement when disc brakes were introduced
on vehicles for the 'consumer-market': [a C-clamp, hex-wrench, (and a brass-hammer, sometimes) sufficed] But Me...(trying to stay within the original equipment mode)
-When asked of the dealership's personnel if I could order a set of OEM disc-brake specialty-tools
I was told: "Sure can! Go see the parts-counter person": Helen Waite
