NOT beating the **** out of the lugs. Just setting up vibration the same as an impact gun does. Thats why impact guns work to remove frozen bolts, get it, IMPACT gun. The lugs shouldn't be damaged if its done right.beating the sh*t out of your lug with a metal rod certainly could work if you're planning on changing out to BMW lugs or buying new lotus bolts. otherwise, I'd try some PBB or Kroil :shrug:.
