i just wanted to respond on the dust caps issue.it seems this pointless theft is an epidemic at the moment as i've had them stolen from 3 different cars.all in south wales.
what the little s---s want with them is anyone's guess but perhaps they are some sort of trophy or a way of "getting one over" on someone with a nicer car than they will ever have because they cannot be bothered to work.anyway rant over.

my concern is if we use locking caps will they turn to damaging the car if they cannot get their trophy otherwise?they will also be at or on or leaning on the car to try to get them off.

as a result i now remove the dust caps on our cars so they hopefully have one less reason to come near the car.terrible that things have come to that but thats the way feral youths are acting these days.

any thoughts from the rest of the ao gang on the above?

Ha ha. Yes... little s---s indeed. I have now fitted some anti-theft dust-caps from Halfords (nice shiny ones that spin and can only be removed with a key). I mean, what has the world come to when some little gits want to nick dust-caps?? So far, the car has avoided having anything else tampered with. However, I was driving through Farnborough after the air-show on Saturday with the roof down and my girlfriend in the car, and I saw two complete useless wasters at the side of the road, sat in a bus stop with bottles of beer in their hands. As I was approaching, one stood-up, took a swig of his beer and moved towards the kerb in an "I'm going to spit beer all over you" kind of pose. Of course, all I needed to do was drive on the other side of the road, wait for him to miss, and then shout abuse at the complete loser of life! If only life was like Grand Theft Auto, so I could've stopped and removed him from society with my bad-ass 12 guage!!

Hi Seasider,

Blue & Me is ipod compatible, but it's not Mac compatible - the ipod needs to be windows formatted and contain mp3s or wmas of wavs. Aacs don't work.

I picked my car up at 5 on friday and parked on the drive - her indoors took me into town and when she got back there were 3 d--kheads crawling over my car.

As she pulled up in front of my car they jumped into their clapped out escort and shot off.

Needless to say my car is now parked behind hers all the time
