Just keep smiling as you hand over the cash. Otherwise obtain them from Breakeryard or other part finding web sites. There are specialist Renault breakers as well.

If buying from anywhere but Renault, check the top of the head, should have 8.8 or 10.9 stamped on it.... that is the tensile rating, any lower then 8.8 or no stamp, don't use it.
I suspect that OEM will be a 10.9

I can't find Renault pinch bolts. Plenty of Ford and Citroen online and local motor factors have not been any use. I could take the old one to an industrial fastenings store and get one with the same tensile strength at a long shot, but....

..........Renault dealerships must take their customers for mugs.
Every car maker does when it comes to spares.
Years back I needed a rear wheel bearing for a Tina.
Ford wanted summat like 12 quid (in the seventies)
Bearing supplier to the company I worked for delivered the right one for little over a pound total.
List price at bearing place was about 6 quid, we got summat like 80% discount.
Gawd knows what price Ford got as they would have been buying direct from the makers. Without the middleman markup.

Same as your bolts, would be pennies to produce.
