We use these bolts on all of our SpecE46 race cars, rather than the stock Torx head bolts.

Replaces BMW Part Number: 26117571956
It’s difficult to get a Torx socket over the stock bolts with the axle’s rubber CV boot in the way. We’ve found using these Allen bolts with a long Allen driver is far easier to torque to spec and less likely to round the head.
We also recommend installing with blue thread locker, loosening axle bolts is a common issue with race cars.
Sold individually, you need 12 to replace all the stock bolts.
Fits all E46 non-M models with manual transmission.
