Brake caliper bracket bolts

I have a 2001 Mini Cooper and I need to replace discs and pads all round. Back are done and were easy. The fronts I'm having difficulty getting the calliper bracket bolts off (not the sliding bolts) and after a lot of swearing and damaged knuckles they need to be taken off with a turbo socket which will ruin it. What I need to know is what bolts do I get to replace them? Please help

As said its absolutely essential you get the genuine parts, dont just go and get some that look similar as the originals will be a high tensile grade spec to cope with the stresses involved.
