SAE or Metric?

Heading off to buy some craftsman tools and prepare garage for
arrival of SSambumbia soon (TPW 11/30), I need some SAE sockets
that I am missing for a while and wondering if I should stock on any metric
ones also.
As soon as I get her I will be working on suspension, then brakes
and by the time those are done I will decide on what forced induction
to go for. I have been following this forum for a while and the development
of parts are quick and aggressive. At first it seemed Superchargers was
the only way to go, but I can see Turbo kits at par given 6 months time.

no problem. You'll find that almost every nut and bolt on the 5th gen is metric or in a few cases Torx.

as far as I know, that's the case with all new-ish cars.
