So I replaced the cv joint but the hub nut that came with the joint is a 6 sided one and not the 12 point VW style one... Is this going to cause me any issue at any point down the line. Why is 12 point used.

Different manufacturers.

Don't worry on it.

Pretty sure Danno has one of my 30 mm sockets.

Don't overtighten... they don't need to be stupidly tight. I once stripped the thread on a brand new CV joint while tightening it to the correct torque. Maybe non OEM nuts can't take as high a torque level....

Ok thanks was torqued up to the correct spec...50nm and 45 degrees...

Was more worried about getting it off again if needed as my 30mm socket is 12 point which I bought for a 12 point nut...Suppose I can get a 6 point one if needed in the future.
