Couldn't you use any bolt with the right thread and a penny washer?

Yep,M6x1.0 thread bolts (around an inch long from memory)and penny washers.

Check the holes and threads for the bolts are still there first though,the favorite thing to happen is either the bolt snaps off in the thread or the captive thread shears off as the bolts seize into them.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Sorry not a bolt expert just been looking and there's loads of dimensions!!! Are all 10mm heads M6? Is the shaft always the same diameter on an M6?

I also sheared a bolt on the bar that runs under the oil filter on the 2.2 - removed it for better access. Luckily that was an M6 of the same size as the one at the top of the headlight unit underneath the front edge of the bonnet. Slightly shorter than the underside cover bolts though. But I don't want the headlight one missing for any longer than I have too

Just got these from boltmeup on ebay :

Cheers chaps

Pretty much, there are exceptions, but they are quite rare and I doubt that you'll find them on a road car especially in that application. The pitch of the thread (the distance between 2 crests on the thread) can vary too, but again, I would expect that as Lag said they will be the more common M6 x 1.0.

They should be fine (providing of course they are long enough), and you'll get no rusty bolts which is a plus

Edit, here's a useful tool, select the thread size of the bolt and it gives you all the relevent dimesions for each type of bolt
