I am chasing after the Torx screws used to hold the stock stereos. I can seem to find them at any shops atm, so I wanna know if anyone has any. Good condition only, as in the heads havent been drilled out.

Cheers

Just regarding using torx screws, its a sad fact that the harder you make it for someone to steal stuff from your car, the more they are gonna f**k your car up trying to get em out. Is it better to just lose a head unit, or have half of your dash smashed to little pieces as well as having your unit taken...........
