            An extensive set of good tools needs to be accompanied by ... the factory service/repair manual! The official one used by the dealer's own mechanics. Is this available from Honda Philippines for Honda cars, or from any other manufacturer for that matter?

            So far, I've been considering buying a Mazda or Subaru car, and both said that it is not possible to buy their service manuals in the Philippines.

            In US, the factory service manual is just another part (or set of parts) that anyone can buy from the parts department. I suppose Philippine car dealers do not make their official manuals available so that DIYers and third-party repair shops cannot easily fix their cars themselves after the warranty expires?

                We use this manual for our 1999 Honda Civic project car. Torque settings are the most important data we need from this manual.

                    Re: Automotive Tools

                    I'm curious bro. How does having the wrenches twisted help? My grandfather was a mechanic and he had his wrenches shortened so they could fit in tight spaces.

                    Why only 5 cars? Collection? Racing team?

                      Here's a short description of the XL X-beam from the manufacturer.

                      I like the wrenches twisted because of the increased contact surface with the palm., much more comfortable to use.

                          er, just a quick one... did you purchase your gear wrench locally? if so, mind if I ask where? I'm looking at the quadbox...tia.

                            I purchased these GearWrench products online from sears.com and amazon.com.
