Someone mentioned something to me that got me thinking:
"Volvos use Torx bolts for EVERYTHING"

So, what tools do you have for your Volvo? What size torx drivers do you keep on hand?
Any other special tools that would be good to have beyond the standard metric driver and wrench set?

A gun helps for those times you feel like shooting it. :p Seriously, a scan tool programmed to read Volvo specific codes would help.

A 35mm socket for the oil filter housing cap on my C70 T5. And a six point, not 12, socket or wrench for the oil drain plug. Mine is 17mm. The reason for this is because the hex head drain plug has slightly rounded corners/edges on it and a 12 pt. will not hold onto it.

8mm and 10mm sockets, T20+25mm torx screwdrivers and a Leatherman live in my trunk toolkit. Been very useful a few times.
