Petty theft of my Audi wheel centres.

Last night some thieving 'bar steward' thought that my wheel centres looked too tempting to leave well alone and nicked them. I suppose I should be thankfull that he didn't take the complete wheels but all the same I am feeling a little down. I know the original ones fetch a few quid on ebay so will look out for a set going in my area in the near future, in case that helps track 'em down. I won't be buying a replacement set of Audi ones as what's the point? They know where I am now so will be back for more.

Took the van for it's MOT and service, fingers crossed no more bad news on its way!

If its any consilation, they probably damaged them getting them off!!

I wanted to remove mine to paint them the other day, and I couldn't get the b:*ds off from the outside!!!

Will have to remove the wheel, and 'pop' them out from the back :(

You're right about the I keep an eye out on E-Bay for a spare set to paint instead, and all you get are the Chinese copies, and even they want 15+ for the non- genuine ones.

Theivin' little scrotes :no

Like the man said, he/she has probably broken then getting them off.

He did scratch the wheels slightly as he took them. I just found a set for 20 on ebay in another part of the country, but as I said I am not even going there again. They were nice while I had them and really set the wheels off nice, especially as the van's debadged elsewhere. One guy in a tyre place actually had to ask what van it was? H:
