    my local stealer said they dont carry spares and that i would need to let them have the car and they may be able to remove them, but wouldnt give me an exact cost apart from saying at least 1 hour

    apart from hammering a socket over the top of each one in the hope that it bites enough to loosen it off and wrecking the socket i dont think you have much choice tbh mate

    tried the socket method but realised the vx nuts have a spinning collar on them.

    I would stand up in court and say any dealer who hasn't got a set of locking wheel nut keys for their own franchise marque a liar!

    Go elsewhere....
