    Anyone else had these fall off? Only done 6k miles and 3 of them seem to have come detached from the car. (Aside: I only noticed as I had a puncture today following a run in with a pothole... £230 for a new tyre.)

    Any tips on where to get some replacements please?

    Yeah lost a few lately, need to get them from your dealer or a local TPS centre.
    Think I bought 15 of them for about £5
    I’ve just been replacing them as I lose them but I’d say I’ve lost about 8 or 9 in the last few months

    Are we back to this again? Audi made a few bad batches of the plastic covers some 3 years ago. There was a modified part issued and I never had problems after fitting those.

    I would have though Audi had learnt a lesson last time

    I had the same lost 2 in 13 months .
    Got my replacements from Audi dealer had them in stock not expensive . Did order some off e bay , were rubbish copies didn’t fit at all . Please note locking wheel nut one is different size / part no . I bought some extras for the future , was thinking about small dab of lock tite to hold them on , but decided against .

    I never lost any until I fitted my wheel spacers and now use extended non genuine wheel bolts.
    The new ones are quite snug but my original ones were pretty loose.

    I had a few go missing, just took the rest off and don't bother with them.
