The new A3 comes with locking wheel nuts as standard. However, they have to be fitted by the dealer pre-delivery and then they get refunded by Audi UK. Now the problem. My dealer says that they aren't expecting any until the end of November. That would me that I would have waited over 6 weeks for this standard item! I asked what the problem was, and the dealer claimed that they were specific to the new A3 and Audi Germany had run out. Considering that my 17" 5 arm star alloys are have been available on both the A3 and A4 for yonks, is this claim credible? Is each set unique and allocated to a particular Audi model? Someone mentioned on another forum that there are only 8 combinations of Audi locking wheel nuts available, so they were not worth the bother. That seems a bit ridiculous to me.
