Default Shop / Machine Shop that can drill Wheel holes?

If possible, I am considering having the BBS rims I'm trying to sell, drilled from 5x114.3 to 5x120. Is this "possible"/safe/not that expensive, and if so, who or what shop around the chicagoland area can do it?

http://www.accuratewheel.com/ would probably know.

And I'm amazed you kept the STi that long! You gotta be close to two years on that one.

If it wasn't cars it would be hookers and blow. At least the trade in value is better with cars.

You can afford the car but not the right wheels? That is not gangsta!

The car will most likely not see the track and will be for fun mostly, but I still want a car that is fun to drive and somewhat performance oriented. Right now, my top picks are:

Newer Miata w/ Hardtop - never driven one, but they get good mpg, like the hardtop even with the weight penalty, and think it would be an enjoyable driving experience. This may be the most chickiest of the cars.

'04+ S2000: great looking, great seats, not high on power (unless in the high rpm range), would look great with a hardtop if I could get one, nice shifter, good handling (as well as the Miata). This is probably the most JDM'est of the cars and scores cool points.

Saturn Sky - I honestly like the styling (flame on!!!), the turbo might be nice, and I believe it and the S2K are somewhat on par for straight line performance/speed at least, but would imagine it is the worst handling out of the bunch most likely. This is probably the gayest of the cars selected.

I was previously looking at Elises, 335i coupes, and M Roadsters, but I think even by then they will maybe get close to $25K, but I'm trying to keep this project/idea a cheaper one, with a payment in the low $200's most likely, after I put down a bit. But who knows, if I can swing something like the just mentioned cars, that could be an idea as well.

Poll created and thoughts, guys?

Thanks,
John
That so, eh John?

hahah, no no, I was just throwing the idea out there, I'll probably pick up the OEM 18's or 19's from the new M3.
