Went to my car at 7.15am to find pieces of kerbing around the car and all but one nut per wheel removed. The car is parked just off road on a small drive at the front of the house, c.15 yards from my front door and less than 10 yards from my immediate neighbour's front door. Somebody had tried to steal my 18" Black Edition wheels - particularly worrying thing is that they managed to remove all four locking wheel nuts with no sign of damage, must have had some sort of key. According to my neighbour the car alarm went off at 3.30am - presumably when they tried to jack the car up to put on the pieces of kerb. I didn't hear the alarm and not impressed by my immediate neighbour hearing the alarm but doing nothing, I chased after the local kids that tried to take his scooter for a joy ride. Tonight I will inform all my neighbours asking them to be extra vigilant and report to the local police immediately if suspicious.
I live near Epsom, normally a low crime area, the police say with the Epsom Derby coming up there are "strangers in the area" sounds like Pikeys then.
I took my car to the local tyre place to get the wheel nuts torqued correctly and have spoken to local Audi dealer - both are very surprised that they got the locking wheel nuts off so easily. I am going to change the locking wheel nuts to a different style.
Any other suggestions as to what I can do to reduce the chance of them trying to nick the wheels again? Do you think they will try again? Is it common to have Audi wheels nicked off the car?
