Source for wheel studs

Hi

Does anyone know of a source for the 2000 Spider Left Hand wheel studs? (12 mm in diameter)

Thanks!

I got some LH studs from Alfaholics for my Montreal. They were not original, but supposedly a still-available BMW part.

I'm fairly certain that the threads (12mm X 1.25 or 1.5) are the same as for the 2000, but I don't know if the head, length, and shank are appropriate. Might be worth a trip to the BMW dealer.

Past Alfas...
59 102 Touring (first Alfa $500 running)
65 Sprint GT (2nd Alfa, $500 daily driver)
102 Sprint (never did anything with it, but wish I had)
74 Berlina (first new car - now certainly rusted into oblivion)
61 Giulietta Spider G-Prod Race Car (where is it now?)
84 Spider Veloce (rarely drove it, so sold it)
86 Quadrifoglio (Dull car - no more 115s for me)
1971 Montreal "The Full Monty". Fair winds and following seas

Current Alfas
59 102 Touring Roadster - restoration complete, enough Alfa for any rational man. Or irrational, for that matter
And past...
Two 1946 Stampe SV4C (c/n 294 "Rocinante" - wife's favorite airplane. RIP), and c/n 235 "La Bon Temps Femme" (gone to a new home, but never forgotten)
Zlin 50LA (+9 -6 gees, titanium spar, 1200 lbs, 260HP rumored to now be in Brazil)
1946 Luscombe 8A
Starduster Too (recently spotted at the Nevada City, CA airport - over 20 years and an entire continent separating it from our stewardship in Binghamton, NY)
1955 Cessna 170B (wife taught me to fly tailwheel in this)

And present...
64 Mooney M20E ("Rambo". My faithful steed for over 30 years) Nearly 50 years old, and just returned from a trip to Argentina in him
Newest in the fleet
1967 Piper Super Cub on Wipline amphibious floats (a true "all terrain vehicle")
2010 Triumph Thunderbird

This bolt may be an option as well but I would verify dimensions before ordering, unless you don't mind shortening the bolt, if necessary. MrF may be able to supply the correct Two-Liter bolts as well. Both sellers are very proud of their bolts and their shipping!

Again, the question of whether 102 and 105 bolts are interchangeable remains. I've got some new 105 LHT bolts here (from Alfaholics). I'll try to eyeball the ones in a spare drum and see what it looks like. The better solution, I think, is to remove a 102 bolt, drive to the BMW dealer, and do some counter-comparison. The price from Alfaholics was entirely reasonable, and of course their shipping cost from the UK is often less than within the US.

The BMW stud appears to be bright-zinc coated rather than black oxide. As they aren't visible while driving, that ought to be a minor problem. If it is considered important, you can wire brush the zinc and use one of the blackening solutions available.

Thanks again for the leads to the studs

I might have also found them here: Alfa Romeo SPIDER (105/115) REAR WHEEL STUD LEFT HAND THREAD

So hopefully I will get some replacement from any of these sources
