I'm looking for a 4 x 100 bolt pattern, so i won't have to change the whole legs etc...

Isn't your Turbo 5x110? ???

Now who doesn't know :P

Turbo and V6 came with 5 stud due to the increased power/weight of the engines/gearboxes. Wheel bolts take the lateral weight of the car so more bolts means less stress per bolt :)
