Not a good discovery :-(

I am embarking on a project to paint my Brembos and upon trying to remove the front wheels I noticed a few things. One wheel is missing a lug nut(it just so happens to be the security lug), and when I used the security lug key to remove the security lug on the other front tire, the lug stripped the key out! The car has only 11,300 miles! This kind of stuff drives you to drinking. By the way, I guess I should have checked the lugs when I bought the car lol
