Help! - 2 missing bolts from my new 147 roof bars!

Hi all,

I've been very fortunate and managed to buy some roof bars for my 3dr 147 on ebay.

Sadly though, on opening the box and going through the parts, there are 2 very vital bolts missing. And they're really unusual wee buggers. (2 of them ARE present and correct.)

Of course I'm going back to the seller to see if he has them - he sells a lot of genuine parts and these are meant to be new (the box is from alfa, so I believe him) however I'm not confident he'll have the 2 bolts lying around.

So the hunt begins for replacement bolts. Does anyone have any suggestions where I start looking for something this unusual?

By the way - they kind of slide down into position and turn round, so a standard headed bolt isn't going to work.

The roof bars are part number 50900571.. needless to say the bolts have no part number on them!

have a look at the attached pics.. and any/all advice gratefully received! (is it even worth asking Alfa??)
