My dustcaps with the logo kept getting nicked so I gave up in the end and just stuck with the black/grey plastic type. One set got nicked while we were away in the caravan and the car was alongside it. I'd always trusted my fellow campers/tourers until then.  >:(

On my lads car we had to run a hacksaw across the top of the metal cap and split them off. If they're not touched for a while they don't half grip don't they.  :y

Yes......metal caps 'weld' themselves and are all but impossible to remove.......as I know to my cost. :-\

I had to 'half inch' a set of plastic caps from a derv Mercedes whilst driving through Brum. :)

Every cloud. :)

Just taken all the metal caps of SWMBOs Subaru & replaced with plastic, the metal ones were getting very difficult to unscrew.

I grease my metal ones.

Round these parts, the kids are too stupid to nick anything like that.
