Saab9-3se I have a electric impact wrench from Canadian tire. Cost 76.99cdn. I have had it for 2 years, works great with lug nuts and other hard to get off bolts. I think its made by mastercraft (Canadian tires tool company)

so i am sticking with the $20 breaker bar and a good hand torque wrench. No real need for a $500 impact drill. THey rock and that snap one is the one to get if you have rusted out old bolts and all you do all day long is remove them but for just your own car it isn't worth the money. for $100 or les you can get a damn good breaker bar all sockets you could ever need for it and a good torque wrench.

Thanks.
No. Save your money they are not worth the time of day.
