HELP!!
they are main dealer only as apart from engine re-builders they dont tend to get touched, i use a old guy for engine machine work in the uk he.s well in his seventy's been rebuilding engines all his life, so in the past i have asked him for these bolts and his answer after rebuilding hundreds of them and never having one back from reusing these bolts. i have done a lot of them as well like this and just give a coat of blue thread lock on them and reuse them,. i know its not the prescribed way forward and would never do this on stretch bolts with cylinder heads but on the mains it will be fine, save your self a few quid as because there is a cartridge for crankshaft to block its very strong,, when re torquing them you get a feel to what the bolt is about to do but those bolts are near impossible to snap off i use a 3ft breaker bar when doing them

the above link is workshop manual for r56 will have all info in there on it worth reading through as conrods and end caps are paired with each other etc, the above is same with turbo and non turbo bottom ends 1.4 and 1.6 petrols.
