List of "must haves" in Bimmer tool box

Hello all,

I have started my "Bimmer" tool box with the following essentials:
  • hydraulic jack
  • jack stand
  • breaker bar
  • torque wrench for lug nuts
  • set of metric hex keys
  • 15-piece set of metric wrenches
  • power bleeder
  • screwdrivers

but was wondering what else you guys would recommend I should add at this point, especially if someone could recommend a set of ratchet/sockets that would cover most of the basic needs.

As I understand that the tools needed are a function of the use intended, let me just describe that: I am only planning on doing basic work such as: break pads, wheel swap, break fluid, oil changes, etc...

Thanks in advance for your recommendations.
