mcgard ftw! every now and then i have to remove locking nuts/bolts when the car owner has lost the spacial tool. i can confirm that mcgards are very hard to remove!

probably these that you're after http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0514360946

just make sure you keep a note of the key number somewhere in case you loose it! ;)

probably worth shopping around a bit. i reckon you should get them for under £20

They're both radius seat rather than cone seat.

Yes, you need radius head (I think the ones Nate posted are tapered, which is only for after-market stuff on VWs).
