Hub Conversion

Probually been posted before, but i used the "search," function, however could not find anything related. I have a MK2 Punto

Anyway the problem is, that there are these wheels that i ahve been lusting over for some time now, however they only come in a five stud fitment!!!

Now i know you can get a conversion from a four stud to a five stud hub.

Does anyone know roughy the cost cost of such a job and any dangers it has?

Cheers, kris
