    I am down here visting the wifes family and we have a house here some 10 km away from Mangels factory of wheels.
    Happened to speak with a neighbor down the block and he is/was an tech. engineer at mangels.

    He told me they do series as low as 100 wheels and it would be interesting if someone here had ANY idea where the price should be!?

    You can read more about mangels here:

    I only know them from VW repros, that is what I have seen in Europe, usually of good quality as well.

    (.. I'd take 8, so anyone interested in the 92 leftovers ;) )

    I clicked on this thinking you were talking about the whole car, replica QV's. Had me worried there for a second. :)

    hehe.. i edited the thread name and kind of cut both front and rear and ended up with a kind of misleading title :)

    Well, I am going to take a look at the situation, pending the engineer manages an apointment for me.
    You dont get Fierorarris here, the Fiero itself is an exotic ;)

    Tons of replicas on the market in Sao Paulo and RJ, but here I only see the odd PUMA or PUMA GTS, kind of 246 GTB inspired with VW basis, all built late 60's to early 80's.
