Think the reason he went to this place was down to the fact he has ridiculously rare/expensive Magnesium wheels, which TBF, you wouldnt want to get damaged...

THIS ^^^^

When your wheels are worth around 800 and are no longer in production you'd pay whatever it takes. I wouldn't let a regular tyre fitter or knuckle dragging grease monkey in a backstreet garage go near them!

Thanks buddy I managed to save myself 17 by filing the key back to a similar shape as it originally was.

Then bought a new set of mcgard that seem less like butter lol cheers for the advice tho

weve just bought this kit at work its a very good used it on an xc90 and we had them all off in 15mins tops makes it so much easier to remove lockers without the key! another good thing about it it doesnt really damage the lockers
