Be very careful with impact drivers as they can do Some damage.
Some cars have aluminium nuts with a stainless steel cover (Ford) they become loose with the use of an impact gun and you will loose the cover reducing your nut size by 1-1.5 mm.
Mostimes you will find out at the most in-convenient time that your wrench doesn’t fit anymore (roadside)

Even my local tyre fitter doesn’t use them anymore they undo the the nuts with a T bar.
