Someone in Denmark told me the bolts are even more expensive there than in Poland

Thanks, but no need. Two hours ago I would have said "Yes, please!", but my brother-in-law found these screws at an automotive warehouse and his car repair shop should have a small discount. The price is 50%-80% of the price through the Citroen dealer. I believe it is the same manufacturer, but without the middleman Citroen. I'll post more info when I get it.

I was thinking you must be able to find them closer to home, even in Germany which is much closer.

I assume you already have a spreadsheet prepped for A-B-A testing

Tempting, but too many variables: I'd be comparing more than just stock steelies and alloy steel-clones, but also the summer and winter tires (each a slightly different size) on them. The RR of those tires would have much more to say than the weight of the wheels.

Also, since the alloys stick out 9mm further (ET18 vs ET27), the rear skirts will have to go This may mess up any gains I'd get from the new wheels, but we'll see. On the other hand, I'm sure that without wheel skirts I'll have less harassment from picture-takers.

Update: My brother-in-law got screws through his shop, for about 60% of the price of what CitroŽn is asking

The screws are made by Febi Bilstein, part number 30400.

We put the new wheels on Svietlana last week, but I haven't had a chance to check them out (my eco-conscience won't let me go for a spin around the block with a cold engine). This weekend we plan on driving to the mountains, hopefully there won't be any problems.
