Yes I have them on my LE, the special tool is in the glove box so I guess anybody wanting to nick the wheels will break the passenger window... ;-)

LOL, I was referring to the fact it has its own little slot in the glove box and is mentioned in the handbook so any thief will think it is there regardless of whether you move it or not. They won't discover you've moved it until after they've smashed the window ;-) ;-)

Mind you, does anybody steal stock alloys any more? I've never had locking nuts on my pickups and nobody even attempted to steal them in 20 years. Are Corsa's more of a target do you think?

More Vauxhall cost cutting my good man, either that or the locking wheel but is now fitted at the factory so there aren't any spare wheel nuts, before it was part of the PDi at the dealers for the mechanic to get a locking wheel but kit from the parts dept and fit the locking bolts one to each wheel and put the removed normal bolt in the box, I'm not sure if you were to go to the parts dept and buy a locking nut set you'd still get them in a box but I'd think so, in any case this was a 2014MY change, all our Vauxhall up to 63 plate at work, Corsa D's, Astra's and Insignias all have a box but the 14 and 64 plate ones just have the little sealed bag.
