Yeah, i thought that bolts would give me some hard time removing them, but they like melted with the hammer and the scraper.
I know that it needs to have a ductile steel, but even with that i thought it need to be more resistant.
The spanner grinded the torx inner lobes easily. Gives the impression that the fastereners are "self destructible" only for buying a new fastener kit instead of using the old ones.
As i will often change the autobox oil and wash the filter, hexagonal heads will become more reliable.

As i always says: Good designs are more expensive, but pays itself with time.
Saves time, money and specially nuisances with something breaking easily. No money on Earth pays the nuisance of a FUBAR situation. A good expensive thing never is a expensive thing.
