    Makes me wonder if there's a better hiding place for the key.

    No they're not, the offset is different.

    If you look at those style of wheels on the A4 or A6 you'll noticed they're far more "dished" than the "flat" A3 ones.

    I think Audi want the thick end of 400 quid a pop for them which would explain why they're worth nicking. I'm going to see if there's somewhere else I can stash the wheelnut key that's not so obviousl

    And he's lucky! At least they put bricks under the car, and also placed them at the correct jack points. They could've just dropped the car down onto the ground, damaging the discs in the process.

    Things will never change until the goverment gets tough on car crime and puts it in the same class as Burglary, really gutted for your mate this has happened to me many years ago so know how he feels.

    The terrible thing is that if you disturbed the thief and gave them a good hiding you would recieve a stiffer sentence than they would, have to say though I'd take my chances in court - complete W@#kers !

    Thankfully not in the UK. Happened in France! Car crime is a big problem over there too, although the governement is attempting to tackle it.
    He really is gutted and I really feel for him.

    Just back from a week in France the thieving scum obviously didnt like my 17" 5 spoke alloys as they are still holding up my car. Or maybe they couldnt lift the 90 bottles of wine i managed to squeeze in next the our luggage. (still got 50mpg on way home!)
