    Angry F***ing Kwik Twats

    I am soooooo pissed off.

    I went up to manchester on saturday to sort out some stuff for my imperative move to the states and I noticed my wheels needed re balancing, so i took the car to the branch in salford who did the job, I asked them to replace my locking wheel key in the glove box which i was assured they had done

    I took my car to kwik fit again in dunstable to have my puncture repaired and i found out they have not put them back

    so after many ****ing conversations and the branch manager admiting he remebered me the regional manager says that as far as they are concerned there is nothin they can do and i will have to get the things drilled out at my own expence.

    i am soooooooo peeved its unbeleivable and i now have to fork out 200 quid to get them done at my local vauxhall stealers

    call the police
    go to the branch
    say they stole your locking wheel nut and refuse to give it back
    and you wont go away till they a) fix it, b) pay for it to be fixed, otherwise demand the police to do a full search of the premises.

    FFS why do people still go to K Fit? ALl of these branches are tossers. I would not have xpected that from them. Write to their head office.
    There is a way to get them off with out drilling them out too, still costs £30 for a new set.

    Or if you have the code order a new key from VX - assuming they are VX lockers.

    hammer an old socket thats a tight fit over the lockers then undo them.

    Theft is the dishonest miss-appropriation of property belonging to another with the intent to permanently deprive. I doubt it was intentional or dishonest so the police wont want to know anyway. Try getting them interested in a deliberate criminal act never mind a mistake !
