    Re: How gutted would you be?

    i cant imagine how gutting that would feel. bad enough seeing my car mirrorless.

    but so i dont have to i've just gone out an gotten some mcgard locking nuts. not too expensive to make it a bit more difficult for the [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img] to nick.

    The standard lockers are easy to get off (not going to expose how on here).

    Get them changed for some McGuards from halfords..

    Job done.

    I second that, if nothing else everybody should change the locking wheel nuts from stock ones to avoid this, stock ones are very simple unfortunately [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    i'd say support your local shop [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img] and you are more likely to get a better price too! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Nothing against halfords!!

    McGuards will set you back about 30 from halfords.

    You have pm regarding the stock ones.

    I've got standard ones and some McGuards in the garage. I think it is time to stop being lazy and go and put them on looking at that!

    LoL Audi have about 7 key patterns - you can easily get the correct keys and have a field day, take some advise and buy some McGuard locking wheel bolts - these have won numerous car tests and awards.

    I have both the McGuard locking nuts (with the twisty/spinny head bolt) and the standard Audi locking nut on each wheel. (8 locking nuts in total to remove if they want my wheels!).

    Not sure I would be 100% happy about doing that though - especially as the seller will need your address to send them to. Wouldn't take too much for them to get a spare key and then 6 months later........

    If they are only 30 new, why risk saving 5 - 10 on Ebay? Or am I being paranoid? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif[/img]

    Re: How gutted would you be?

    my mcgards were labelled 25 - not ultras. and i think i paid 20 with discount [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    go to your wee local guy and offer him 25 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]

    and i'd second/third the thing about buying off ebay - i wouldnt take the risk for the amount of money you'll save.

    How about some quick grip in a tube from Jewsons, they won't get those [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif[/img] wheels off even if they do get the bolts off. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_2.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_2.gif[/img]

    Is everyone so sure that they are stolen? Maybe it's just another new optional extra money making thing from Audi. 1,000 for a full set of wheels! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]
