    Vehicle : 2.0l CDTi Bi-Turbo Insginia Sports Tourer

    Trim : Vx Line Nav Sri

    Engine : 2.0

    Year : 2014

    Default Valve caps

    Just been out to the car and noticed that not one, but all four anti-theft valve caps are missing
    Now, the question is where they stolen or did they work loose and fall off?
    They were black with silver irmsher tops on.
    Today is the 1st time i've seen the car in daylight since last weekend and they were on then.. Oh well, back to the plastic ones.

    Sussed it out! They must have been nicked. Note the finger marks. Washed it last Sunday and cleaned the wheels etc and they were on then.

    Yep, thats the ones. Only bought them 2 weeks ago when i bought the car, so don't think they were rusted etc (they were aluminium). The theiving barstewards obviously had a key or a piece of wire to put in the hole.

    We'll never mind, back to black plastic ones now.
