    Just use the original ones. I spoke to 2 dealers prior to changing my discs and both said they don't bother replacing the bolts. They just clean up and remove the old stud lock from the threads and apply new stud lock on re-assembly.

    No new bolts came supplied with the discs I bought from Vx, btw.

    The bolts don't come with Vx genuine disk/pad sets. Odd that dealers often don't have them as Vx say to replace them. Usually a 1 or 2 day order but this depends on the dealer. My own view is better safe than sorry for only around £5 per axle... Also, it's possible to damage the heads getting the present bolts out as the torques are high - especially on the front - and some people have found bolts that seem to be even tighter than they should be.
