$200?  How do you figure?  Are we talking one car or two here?

5bolts per wheel times 4 wheels is 20 bolts at $5ea is $100 plus shipping.
4bolts per wheel times 4 wheels is 16 bolts at $5ea is $80 plus shipping. and both sell the cone-shaped bolts (known 
as tuner or conical style) for around $2.50 each.

That'll put me at about 200 bux for all - kinda steep I find.  Thinking of machinig some OEM VAG bolts (got lots of those) from ball seat to cone seats.  Anyone done that and kept the wheels on the car?

It is better to wear out than it is to rust out.
