Okay, what 5 bolt hub?  I was saying get a quattro because you need 
all the hubs (to press in).  I guess you could get a FWD turbo, and 
a set of 5 bolt hubs for the back.  But if you get a q from the start, 
you get more parts to sell when you part out the rest, IMO.  
Am I missing something?

What do you have to do to the front?  Can't you just press the 5 bolt 
hub there too?
