I very recently purchased my Elise and I have a head light bulb out. I was planning to replace it this week-end but I found that the tool kit is missing the tool required to remove the wheel bolts. And my torx set will not fit...so any one have a spare they don't need? I need to buy one.

You can get them from your closest dealer. Should be about $10.00 each. get 2, one to keep in the car and one for your tool box - Rob.
+1

buy two or three. they're easy to lose.

torque is 78 lb ft.

Then change to BMW ones and and you won't have to use the tool, just a normal 17mm socket.

By the way, it's a unique tool. It's not a Torx (they are six point), and it's not "rounded" like a Torx. It is "squared off" like an Allen head, but as noted, it is 10 point. As far as anyone has been able to determine, the only place you can get one is from Lotus (but as noted, they aren't expensive).
