    Default Feeked locking key.....

    My locking key was bu66ered so I went down too my local VX stealers to order a new one and was told it would cost 27 bucks.....

    Then one of the guys came over with a BIG hammer and said "ah don't worry I can fix that no problem".....

    He managed to get it off with no damaged to the alloy with the feeked key and I got a new set of locking nuts and key for 24 bucks.....

    So it would of cost £27 for a new key.....

    But only £24 for a new set of locking studs and key.....
