exhaust studs/nuts

m7x42 and m7 copper locking nut.

Anyone know where to get locally? stealership lulz and I dont want to pay $35 shipping for $20 worth of product.

typical fastener places do not sell this size.

lol I dont want old shit parts for this app..would you use old exhaust bolts?

I ordered from bimmerspecialist. best deal in this case. bmw dealers are straight up ****ed here. they wanted $3.12 and $3.97 ea (need 24 of both) for parts worth $0.50 brand new.

its a stud and nut. not a blowjob machine made out of gold.

did you check with Mike at Maranello? usually his prices are much better especially for small things like nuts and bolts.

For anyone else who finds this thread, do yourself a favor and buy these studs instead of the regular ones: 11127593376

I didnt try Mike. I tried a couple other dealers and they mustve just done a dump truck full of coke before I called.

for that application. ya its a much superior design than bolts in this case...a mix n match of bolts with studs/nuts ok..but all out bolts?

not what id want to do . studs and nuts are an engineering design. bolts are an accounting design
