    Been out for a meal with the wife tonight to the Trafford Centre in Manchester. When we got back to the car someone had gobbed on the rear window. (dust caps still in place however) Why do people do stuff like that ?? Better than any damage i supose, but what do they get out of it ?? Filthy animals.

    Vehicle : Ford Kuga

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 2.0dtci

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 1200

    Default

    I either use the scrappy platic ones, or the Richmond ones that spin without the key, like a locking wheel nut. I expect any key will fit, but at least the scum have to spend a tenner on a set to get mine off, lol
    As to knicking goods, many years ago I worked in Brixton Woolworths, had exits on three sides, one straight into the street market, another into high street, 3 lane road, couple of dozen bus stops, very busy. Had all sorts stolen, from the usuaal swetts and jewelerry to stereos and washing machines - how the hell do you do a runner through a crowd with a washing machine?

    I have no idea, we had a 50" Plasma walk out tho, I was impressed! I saw em this time an decided these scumbags needed a kicking, turned out there was 3 of them an 1 of me and its a sat job so not worth the hassle lol. I got it back tho haha.

    Put some copper grease on the threads before you fit them ... really wish the previous owner of the mrs`s corsa had done this .... 3 came off with a lot of effort with the mole grips ... one had to go to the local tyre place to replace the valve ( cap in situ )
