Wheel studs?

Guys and girls,

	How many of you have been very frustrated by those stupid wheel 
bolts on the Audi?  I hate 'em.  My RX7s all had 'em too.  I changed them 
to studs.  They were only M12x1.5, and readily available.

	Well, I started calling around to get studs for my '86 5KCSTQ, 
and found out that noone has M14x1.5 - 40mm long studs!  I finally found 
a company that specializes in small run custom fasteners, so I may have 
some made up.  If I do this, it will prolly get cheaper to do a bigger 
batch of them.  Is anyone out there interested in switching over to studs?

	If so, let me know, so I can estimate the numbers that I can plan 
for.  If there are a few of you, then I'll look into having them make up 
a hundred or so.  I estimate the cost at about $50.00/car assuming 
20 studs per car.
