  • Did them some in a bag with a Porsche parts sticker?
    The OEM parts have a zinc flake coating and a shank as Bowie said - the shank is sized for a tight clearance fit on the caliper mounting hole.
    Those you have will work but sorry to say that they are not the right ones and you could have bought them for £4 off ebay.

      You live and learn

      They did come in a bag with a part number but no logo. I've searched the internet and can't find anything bad about 911design. Looks to be a reputable trader, been going for 20 years. I will give them a ring on Monday and see what they say about them being OE (as stated on their website). If they are not, they can have them back!

          • For reference I've used this Ebay seller before for fine pitch stuff

            https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/M12-x-1-5...GrGA:rk:2:pf:0

            If you can, find a local nut and bolt supplier that you can visit and pay cash, note the non-Ebay price for the same bolt is 89p!

            • Not much to report.
              I contacted the Porsche spares place and they were adamant they were OE bolts. I did find a Porsche specialist in America selling the same looking bolts, also apparently OE. I was offered a refund but decided to decline as they are on the car and work fine.
              I visited my respray guy and we had a good long chat. I had a look at some of his work and it all appears to be top quality. So, it’s booked in for January. The fact that he is the Secretary of the local Classic car club also gave me some confidence and he really likes old Audi’s!
              I haven’t really done much to the car recently. Today I torqued up the inner CV joints on the front axle. I didn’t have the correct tool so had to order one and the job got forgotten about whilst I moved on to other jobs. This was unfortunate as it’s a ****** to do with everything else fitted! Still managed with a long extension bar through the side of the wishbone.
              On the exhaust front, I found out that my middle and back box are actually from a 2.6/2.8 Audi 80! This explains why it doesn’t mate up with the cats properly. It’s a smaller diameter tube!
              So, if anyone has a RS2 or S2 Avant middle and back box for sale, let me know. If I can’t find a good second hand one, Jetex look nice and aren’t too expensive.
              I had another nice parcel arrive last week. I took the plunge and ordered one of Alex’s coil conversion kits. I must say that the quality of his stuff is really exceptional. I take my hat off to him and can’t wait to fit it. Looking for some coil pencils first. They all seem to have gone up in price since I first looked!
              I’m hoping my boy will give me a had to put the bonnet back on over the weekend, then I will post some more progress pics.
              I have a few tasty leftovers. I will post a for sale thread when I have taken some pics.

                    That was quick!
                    I ran a quick search on AT and they don't seem to have them. Anyone?
