    The standard bolts should be fine if they are both OE.

    Yep, your existing bolts will be fine. It might be worth investing in some better lockers though while you're at the wheels (I keep meaning to get some McGards) - there are only about four possible keys to the Audi ones, so not enough to slow down a well prepared tea-leaf.

    Just thought it worth a mention while we're on the subject...

    Regards,

    Rob.
