Anybody used these? Good idea of waste of money?

I've got one, and I think they're a lot of money for what they are.

 

A guide to tell you which nuts and bolts are for where would be useful, and there were no bolts that hold the timing chain cover on for example

Looks like there are some eBay alternatives http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Wrights-Auto-Supplies/MINI-/_i.html?_fsub=4505554015&_sid=199117325&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322 

Of course I could buy every nut / bolt / screw separately but would be a lot of work to know what I would need. It's kind of nice that somebody has gone to the effort to try and work it all out.

 

Unless somebody can advice common fittings that could be bought in bulk.

the A-series spares kit I have is just a collection of nuts, bolts, screws and washers, there's no guide as to what any of them are for.

 

You need to bag up all the bolts as you take the car apart and label them, then you can comarpe these to the ones in the kit
