We need to come up with some help for Nik to get BOLTS lovely new black boots on!
She is after black headed wheel nuts for the MINI so any help is gonna get em on a little quicker! thumbs up thumbs up

Apparently the dealers do the bolts in black (doooohh of course they do they do black wheels now!) Rolling Eyes Try Woodhams on TM for prices! I always find them very good I just saved £30 on some JCW splitters and brake duct grills! Wink

Well I thought it would be good to idea ask about this over on MT!
http://www.minitorque.com/forum/f14/black-wheel-bolts-covers-7948/
Got 1 suggestion then the thread was hijacked by several people about mentioning a dealers name from the suggester! Rolling Eyes Talk about a big FAIL! That place is getting worse! Evil or Very Mad So I washed the car instead! Laughing

Thank you Rob - you're too kind to me! If I make the pub meet, I'll treat you to a pint. Very Happy

Ooops, I'm guilty of taking part in the thread hijacking Laughing

Anyway to be helpful - the wheel bolts on mine came in black from the dealer, even the locking one is black. I didn't know this wasn't normal! I'd suggest the dealer's probably as good a place as any!

That's alright Alex I'm not getting at anyone! Just that MT used to be a lot more welcoming! I know its the best site for engine and suspension modders and the like! But I just feel so outside of the banter you know you got to be in a clique like now?
Anyway I just posted what I thought was really a funny post in the Hitler post! They have pages of back slapping about how a certain person had posted the vid around to annoy people on other sites! It was all quite juvenile really! but I suppose they had the laugh to be fair! They kept on for pages about a Kenny? and how funny it was that the vid mentioned him ! So I posted 'So who is Kenny' I'm laughing at picturing their faces contorting through rolling eyes to gnashing teeth to nods of disdain! Laughing Laughing
I do love em but at the same time hate em! Rolling Eyes Laughing Laughing

Anyway thanks Alex for your help matey! You are always most welcome here as far as I am concerned! Wink
