The bolts are $0.93 and the nuts are $0.21. Shipping is reasonable - I had several other things and the shipping was $6.80 total.

If you're feeling guilty about re-using your $20 BMW bolts, this would be a much more economical alternative.

Hopefully there is enough thread length on these. What has put me off using these 60mm long versions in the past is the only ones I can get locally don't have enough thread length for the front two locations - the four rear locations are fine.
