    Sheffield owners beware

    Just a word of caution for Sheffield/south Yorkshire Audi owners.

    On Thursday night someone took my fog lights and grille surrounds and wheel centres off my 2009 sport back sport.

    To add insult to injury they cut wires and scratched wheels.

    Keep an eye out for anything suspicious. Parts from Audi are a ridiculous £500+

    If anyone has the correct wiring looms or other parts (wheels are standatd17" 5 spoke sport alloys) or advice on fixing the wiringg get in touch.

    Thanks for replies guys, they cut the wires, so need to figure it out. Might not bother with fogs, worried it will happen again ,also need to get rid of warning light.
    A3 Kent, thanks, may take you up on that.

    Get the fogs coded out for now until you decide, put some electrical tap over ends for now given area is prone to road crap/water.

    If you do want to fit fogs again & need the wiring etc all sorted, give me a shout as I can do this.

    Police should set up a few bait cars in the area and make it a minimum of 5 years in jail for trying to steal a car or parts from it ...

    Need to get this sorted, don't suppose anyone has the plugs that fit into fogs, need to repair damaged wiring and would prefer to put proper plugs on.

    Let me know if you have them and how much you want inc postage.

    Thanks
