Thanks Doug and guys! You've all been very insightful! I've been in contact with a company in Germany regarding the wheels. My first email in English went unanswered. So I translated that into German and re-sent it. Hopefully, the on-line translator didn't butcher their language too badly! I'm trying to work out the shipping and customs issues. I once ordered a KW coil-over suspension from Germany for my MIV GTI and was able to get it without too much trouble, so I'm hoping the same for these wheels!
