    That's what I did when I needed the exact same bolt

    It's not that common as it's a flanged torx fitting
    The next step

    It’s the tork head that’s making them hard to find.

    Just go for hex - what’s the issue? Just ‘cause they’re not exactly as OE?

    Said bolt is now winging its way from Motorworks. Probably the most expensive bolt in the world.

    Thanks for all suggestions & help

    The pic in the first post shows that the bolt's got a slot cut in it - probably why it's pricey. What's the slot for though?

    They're just regular bolts. No idea why you'd spend BMW bucks on them
