Some #*%! Keeps Stealing My Wheel Centre Caps
Found 12th Nov 2017
In need of some advice please. My car is always either parked on the side of my house (on driveway) or right in front of my house. I live in a newly built, quiet area (low crime rate at present).
Over the last 5-6 months or so, my four wheel centre caps off my car (VW Golf GTD 16 plate) have been nicked. I’ve replaced them 3 times but it does seem my car is being targeted. It seems they don’t want to steal the actual car, just my wheel caps.
I have CCTV on my house however because the offender is fully covered up, it’s no good to the police or me. I’ve not reported it to insurance company (what’s the point?!) CCTV is clearly no deterrent to the offender. The spotlight makes no difference to the offender neither.
I don’t have any beef with anyone (neighbours etc) so highly unlikely that someone is doing it to just piss me off. My car alarm doesn’t go off, as it’s so easy just to pick them off with a straight screwdriver.
They are relatively cheap to replace but I’m fed up of it happening. I can’t stay up all night staking out as I have a new born baby and am absolutely exhausted!
If I was to replace them, is there a more secure way to attach them? I’m guessing I can’t super glue them as I would need access to wheel nuts at some point.
All advice is greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
