PS. To cover the settings in the Haynes i need one that covers 8Nm - 280Nm
Think i may need 2 wrenches then
Not me Chuff, mine is hiding

Seem to be plenty in the 30-210nm range around the price. People like silver line or draper would not be top quality but would be more certain the "trade quality" no name.
Seems to be snap on or Sykes pikavent second hand around the price as well. Better quality but unknown history.
Forget the baby range unless you really going ocd.
Higher range, I'd pop down local hire shop for the few occasions that may be needed.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
