As others have said on the list, wheel availability is all in how you ask
the question.  Some of the '80s Mercedes have the same 5x112mm bolt pattern
as the Audis.  Their bolt holes are smaller, and the hub hole is bigger, but
this can be overcome by any competent wheel or machine shop.  In fact, Tire
Rack said they could do this for me for a reasonable fee.  Good luck.  BTW,
make sure the wheel offset will work with the TQ.
