I know a lot of people will be aware of this but I was'nt.
Just got a spare wheel to replace that "pump up thingy" on taking the stuff out of the moulded poly found the "thing for the locking wheel nuts on the alloys and also a very small "thing" that is used o take off the VW centre plate on the wheels to get to the wheel nuts.

NOW I can do most things check oil,water etc but had no idea about this tiny piece of wire and was all for throwing it away. Now safely saved with jack etc.

lol... i must admit until I needed to change the wheel once on my polo I didnt know you needed one of these... then mine went "missing" after a trip to the tyre centre. and from then on i used a wire coat hanger... not that I recommend this as if you slip the centre cap is easy to damage!

You normally start with a flat tyre!

A: flat tyre
B: call a man (one you're in a relationship with)
C: alternative to B, call a man employed by the AA

Woof woof!

But I'm very particular about who gets to fiddle with my nuts and I insist they are torqued properly

Oooh. Errr. Matron!

We do have other uses too you know!

for example - we can fill it up with fuel, wash it, take it to get serviced.. The list is endless!

UNBELIEVABLE!! These are the type of people our kids look up to!

"I have never had to put gas in it"!!! Incredible!

Kudos to the press photographer, he seemed a real nice guy. I cannot believe she didn't say keep the change to him for his trouble even, she just chucked it like the change was infected or something.

I don't think he will bother next time.....Edited by: Markmod1

it doesnt suprise me that paris hilton doesnt do anything that will get her dirty... in the actual sense. lol

however, some of us girls can change a wheel and put fuel in, and check oil blah blah blah... however if there is a useful man around then why not, im sure most men like to do the "manly" thing?

Has she got a sister that I married?

Or is it just a woman thing?
