You can get a set of them from supercheap for not too much, quality wise they are fine, ive used them for seats, stereos, door trims, door locks and latches etc.

A complete set is worth it rather than just one....

Ha ha THe day I wanted to take me Seat out to repair it I ended up using an Allen key instead as I went to go and buy one of those T50 Torx keys and every bloody Store I went to had either none in stock or had sold out of them. It took a bit of time, but eventually got me seat out :lol:

I found a T45 bit had enough bite to remove out the T50 screw in the steering wheel. I haven't tried the seats.
