As far as i am aware there are currently NO cast metal reproductions being made.
There was some fibre glass ones made a few years ago but they were rubbish from what I have seen photos of.

You best place is to go to eBay Australia and look in the car parts section (just type in "XB flutes" in the search)
Be advised... these are getting RARE and desirable items and will go at high a $1000 for a good set with all the pins on the back.
We are 100% snafu....

I understand that www.madmaxcars.com has just released some first run replica side flutes that are spot on to the originals. Maybe time to give them a shout?

Hi, Some fibreglass reproduction ones are on eBay at the moment:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/180833588072 ... 1438.l2649

If you are interested and the seller does not want to send to Deutschland you could have them sent to me in New Zealand or perhaps I could bid on your behalf. Depending on how quickly you want them there is also the possibility of delivering them in person. I will be in England, France and Germany in May.

These should be a cheap alternitive. Sadly, if they are the same fiberglass ones that used to be available through parts stores, they are pretty ugly up close. Hard to tell from the pix, may be a diffrent casting, but I doubt it. The new cast ones at MMC are direct castings from NOS units.
