    Dealer should be able to supply you with another key, although IIRC they are not cheap.
    Might be worth contacting the place you got it, see if they still have it.
    Good luck

    A snap on ripper socket will remove them, but with out the code that comes in the box with the bolts its nearly impossible to get a replacement. Also the replacement is nearly as expensive as a new set.

    Edit: just seen your in Luton, Mark aka gsi3.2 is your man to help you out in that area
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    A decent garage will be able to remove your locking nuts matey, but they won't 'guarantee' that the alloys won't get marked.

    My advice is the same as above. Go back to where you bought the car from and try and get them to take responsibility for it.

    I paid £28 for a new key from main dealer 3 weeks ago as my key had a crack in it.
