    Wheel Nut Pain

    I'm starting to get a bit tired of my car, I'm sure it's jinxed. Anyway, I purchased an RS4 grille off pjm (cheers Paul) so in an attempt to change it over I thought I'd swap my front wheels for the rear to get a bit more life from them.

    However, one of the wheel nuts has had it's edges worn away, presumably from the crash repair place it was at. Hopefully I can point my stepdad at it to get it removed, any tips?

    Also, anyone know where I can get a replacement nut (I have the 18" S-Line 5 spoke alloys)? Scrapyards seem to want 20 for a full set, I only want one!

    You might have to drill it out or weld a socket/bolt onto it if you can't catch it as usual.

    They are probably cheap enough from audi for a single one.
