Locking wheel bolts on SE

Noticed on my standard edition that no locking wheel bolts are supplied (very surprised) and was wondering if these were supplied on the LEs ? If not has anyone had them fitted (by dealer or else where)? And what is the specification?

Any help appreciated

They weren't supplied as standard on my standard edition either, they were offered by my dealer as an option for around 28. I was a bit miffed to be honest that they weren't standard on a 50k+ car but there you go! Apparently they're not standard from the factory as most markets don't bother with them (no-one nicks alloys outside the UK??). Photo attached if that's any help (yes I know my wheels are dirty already! )

Yes, Alarms and security bolts aren't standard in most mainland EU countries.

Locking bolts are dealer fit items, usually fitted at PDI in the UK.

Understand locking bolts are not plant fit as it would play havoc on the line or doing it off line, but these and a set of mats FOC at the dealer wouldn't be asking too much.

Thanks guys, guess I'll have to try and sweet talk the dealer into fitting them FOC, maybe plead poverty after having to drive down again for the seat fitting.

Deggles are you still smitten after the first week? 6 days to go for me until I take delivery...
