I use a 5 to 50~ and a 30 to 250. I would believe both loose accuracy at their extremes, particularly lower extreme.

Curious on the name if I may...
Do you also have a Subaru? What model? Is it modded in any way?
I have a 1/2" Craftsman beam torque wrench that I use for setting torque on lug nuts. But in my mind I look at that as +-5 ft lb since you're really just eyeballing it. I may get another torque wrench to cover a different range like you said.

As for the name, I used to have a 2008 Legacy GT and yes it was modified a bit. ********, boost controller, tune, Koni shocks and Swift springs. Wheels/tires. Nothing too crazy, great car just not as nice as the 335i.

The first half of my name refers to my 1990 Nissan 300zx twin turbo which I got before the BMW and sold the Subaru. Still have it, was modified before my ownership but I got it back in really good shape nowadays. There's always more work to do but I plan on keeping it forever if I can
