standard wheels the bbs ones, in fact they had all just been replaced under warrenty a few months ago. if i find them i'll let you all know so you can have a kick!

thanks for the concern. it is with insurance company's garage (not vw) but they have ordered wheels from them and they will do any paint work damage (a small amount on the skirt, brakes are ok. i'll get her back but never the same might have to sell.

Gutted for you mate.

A good tip is to put the steering on full lock, which should prevent the scrotes removing the front wheels, and secondly in my experience it is a real bugger to remove the the rear wheels as more often than not, they're seized on the hub.

When I changed my wheels after last winter, it took a large hammer to release the rears, and set off the alarm.

When you get your new ones, fit 2 sets of McGuards with the rotating collar, should act as more of a deterrent.
