    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 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif 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 /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.

    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!).
     
  18. Anyone know if the mcguard Ultra are worth the extra money over normal ones?
     
  19. F/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif IN W /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gifRS..........
    2 sets of lockin nuts on mine tho /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/fuck_you.gif
     
  20. you can get the mcguard locking wheel nuts cheaper in the group buy on ts

    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
