    Can't help you out personally, but it would be more helpful if you post a pic of the type of locking nut you have?

    I have lost mine too, so I rang Audi hoping they would associate my Reg with the correct key.

    They said I have to go down with the car, they will have a look and order me a key, then I have to go back for it a few days after. All the while not getting a puncture lol.

    My Car is off the road right now, but this will have to be the first job once its back.

    Audi have boxes of keys as they are numbered and or carry a letter so when they charge u for removing the nuts they simply select the right key and whip em off theiving scum

    There are 12 different key variations for the A3/S3 from 98-03. when i first got my S3 i had no key, Fortunately for me a work mate who owns an S3 a few years younger than mine had one that fitted my nuts perfectly. I took that key to the stealers and they charged me around £30 for a new key, Happy i could now remove my wheels but felt robbed at the price as i could get a set of McGuard Bolts+keys for that price.
