I'm going to make a lot of people cringe, but most of that set is Harbor Freight, and the whole thing, including tool roll ($22 from Bob's BMW) was just under $75. Keep in mind, at that price, I got a lot more tools than you see in the kit. I keep the extras in my Craftsman toolbox next to my craftsman tools. I take my kit to tech days a lot, and occasionally lose tools there. This helps me feel better about it.

Also, the HF hand tools I have used have never broken or caused an issue. YMMV

Some cost savings can be had in the form of a 13/16" spark plg socket head, which is 22mm, cut off to use for the front axle, and using a simple screwdriver to remove your spark plug wire/coil.
