Off the top of my head...a decent set of metric sockets in the common BMW sizes. 13,16,17,19 was what I used. Now, I also ordered new everything, including some oops, didn't need that after all stuff. I ordered both upper and lower rear mounts, when I didn't need to. I went with "when in doubt, get new". Ordered new Upper and lower rear pads (oops), new front strut mounts, new pinh bolts, new strut nut for the top, new washer for the strut assembly, new rear shock bolts, new rear mounts (even though they were just replaced a few months prior anyway). So you might not need all the same stuff depending on your condition. I just went with everything.

Here's the post I made when I put mine in, if it helps: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showpos...&postcount=521
