I just done this... It was easy, needs a bit more welding at the moment though...

I know there is someone here in Aus that makes the adapters, but he charges like $500+... Personally I was thinking about doing a hub+brake swap with a newer subie, but then I wouldn't be able to use my 6 stud mag's! :-\

Sorry, I don't have any links for you :(

Beware. Back when I was heavy into the old VW addiction, I have seen adapters break......with tragic consequences. Do a hub/wheel conversion.

I searched for "wheel adapters"

It took about 30 seconds to find this:

Seems they don't do the subie 4x140 to XxXXX (I didn't see anything there, maybe they do custom?) you could use the 6x5.5 (6x139.7mm) stud to 5 or 4 stud..

Personally, I wouldn't touch lug adapters. They DO break. My friend used some on his old school bug... one of them ended breaking after a few months...

If you want lug adapters, search for peugeot 505 adapters as well.. When I lived in WA, there was a guy that was making them 4x140 to 5x100 adapters. Not cheap though.

You'll never find anyone who can make them for a reasonable price...
I've tried forever. I had custom rims made for less than adapters.
