    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'

    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.
