    I hate it when that happens, unlucky mate, maybe worth just getting some body coloured ones if you are using the car for work. I have the cheap InPro Chrome jobbies which does the same job... OK, they are cheap and not the genuine article, but I won't be so annoyed if someone took them!(touchwood). Hope you get it sorted soon.

    You could try "AllAudi" or "4ringspares". If you want them, gloss black could you not spray them yourself? At least then you pick them up in any colour from the breakers.
