With my spreader...you can immediately start discussing different OB/GYN techniques with the hotties at the track and go from there. He spreads, he scores!

This tool allows you to push the piston in straight. Not to mention you don't mess up the edges of your pads. And you don't have to take off the master cylinder cap if you're quick inserting the pads (a minor pain in an E9X). And its just easier.
