Some very enterprising and brazen thieves have been stealing wheels
from cars at the bus commuter parking lot - they leave the cars on
cinder blocks and jacks. I would like to know where I can buy wheel locks for a 2002 A6 2.7. I have visited some of the more popular sites - Autohaus, VW/Audi parts, and Auto parts and tools - without luck. They do not seem to carry wheel locks. Does anyone know where I can get them? Would the wheel locks for a 1999 BMW fit this Audi? Also, I am not partial to the gorilla design pattern locks, I broke a lock in a previous BMW and had to take it to a mechanic to have the lug released. I am not sure how they stand to being compressed by the tire changers at Costco, they do not stand well to being impacted with a wrench.
Thank you for all the suggestions regarding the suspension control arm parts and work. Can a regular mechanic change them, or are there special tools needed? I know the car would need a wheel alignment afterwards, but is changing them a specialized labour chore?
Don't pick lemons.
