    Mrs phoned me today at 1230, me already having a stressful morning with the kitchen fitters, saying she had parked up in town centre car park ( very busy) came back 30 mins later to find her car (megane) on a jack, with her front wheel missing!
    Cheeky bar stewards!
    Can laff now but was fuming at the time! Haven't heard of this since the 80'

    Blimey, that's why we have locking wheel nuts isn't it?

    Your missus must have been fuming!

    Cant believe someone would do that i mean how much would a wheel/tyre for a megane cost on ebay?

    Shouldn't laugh but look on the bright side at least you gained a new jack out of it.
