I'm a fan of the Wiha. If you can try a few different ones out before buying to see what suits you best.
Was just looking at a set of those - thanks. Is it possible to adjust the Torque settings or are they set to a unified standard, with all manufactures being set to the same setting?

Very easy to adjust providing you remember to push the torque setting driver (one with the black handle) in fully and make sure you only use it with the big red bit installed - I didn't first time I used it and nearly sent them back until I realised my mistake....:oops:

I went for the following set (appeared to be best value at the time), but to be honestly only real use the PZ/SL bit for torqueing up inside the CU.

I went for the armeg, must say not overly impressed, had a few 3.5mm flat heads snap, and a +/-1 also the foam in the carry case stopped gripping all the bits after a year
 
I have a Wera. Comes in a nice roll to hold multiple blades and very easy to adjust. I'm not a spark, so it's not used regularly, but qualtiy seems to be top notch.

Think there are a few variations of this driver, with different torque ranges, so you'd need to choose the one most suited for your work. I think the one I have is adjustable from 1.5-3.2Nm.

Wera on order - thank you all.

i already have a Wiha slim interchangeable set, so just bought the torque handle. only problem is that with the Wiha, the bits keep falling out. I've lost about 6 in the last 6 months and at £6 0dd apiece, not cheap to replace.
