What are these actually called and where can one buy them?

Mine are rusty and I had to cut one off as the bolt snapped inside it upon removal. Or a non OEM alternative that is UK weatherproof would be better.

I don't know what they are called but it looks like you get them in this pack on eBay?

I spent forever trying to source the exact same ones ended up cleaning them up and plating them.

When you find ones you're happy with maybe plate them so they last longer. You'll be surprised at how quickly rust gets at these type of clips.

Thanks, I've got some A2 stainless ones on order from eBay. Not as moisture resistant as A4 (A4 bolts were easy to source), but should fare better than the OEM ones, especially since I tend not to drive in the wet.

How about the rivets that hold on the intercooler shroud? Should I replace like-for-like or is there a better aftermarket solution?
