I would suggest that you and a second person "tear the car apart" to see if you can find the lug nuts. A friend went through the same thing the other day with a Mini where there was a special (read hidden) place for the lug nuts. He had to go back to the dealer to get them to tell him where they are normally stored.

I doubt that the last people kept them (but it could happen). My first guess, and it would be worth some search time, is that they are "hidden" someplace. Best to have a couple of people look as each of us look at things differently.
Found my nuts!!! Verbier you were right after pulling out everything I finally looked under the doohickey which holds the jack and wrenches in the trunk, and it was wedged under there in a black cloth bag!! On a matte black surface. If you looked at it from more than 3 feet, you wouldn’t even see it. Two garages failed to locate this..

Congratulations to advice givers and OP alike.

And all my family laugh at me because I insist on making bright orange or yellow bags for small things ( and some larger things) which are going to be stored somewhere which is not brilliantly lit.
