    It really, really annoyed me despite looking to some like minor damage.

    I had to take my wheel off so used the Audi supplied spanner, when I put it over the nut and turned it, the sides gouged the alloy inside the nut recess. I changed to a different spanner which then gouged the outside.

    Is there a different spanner that Audi supply for these S-Line 18" alloys?

    See pic below.

    I use a deep 17mm socket with a good run of insulating tape around it to prevent this happening and one of those extender bar thingys

    Flattery will get you everywhere :sm4:

    I must thank Rich for giving me the impetus to painting my calipers, it really was as easy as he said :thumbsup:
