    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

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

    McGuards will set you back about £30 from halfords.

    You have pm regarding the stock ones.

    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? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif

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

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

    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif wheels off even if they do get the bolts off. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_2.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh_2.gif

    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! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif
