    as said they are all different youre looking at up to 2 hours work to remove the wheels if the locknuts have been tamperproofed with a slip ring

    hey, i had the same problem with my 55 plate A3, but i lost the locking nut!

    I contacted the spares dept at the local stealers who had a small breifcase thing with loads of the locking keys in it.
    They matched it then i bought the key and 4 locking nut's from memory it only came to around £25 ish

    Give them a try you never know
