I like the idea although I suspect ATS will still forget to do them up, if not pinch them! ;)

Where did you buy those from?

A guy i use for the titanium stud kits also produces standard length bolts in titanium as well. Where im not worried about spacers, i thought bolts would be a good idea this time!

If you want his details, then let me know. £110 delivered.

Had a few people PM me, but his number is ‪07766 987364‬ and name is Daniel. For all those that were interested. Really nice guy, and will do any length etc. 

Hope it's OK to post his number :blush:

So all together 10kg of weight saving by changing to these bolts???

:lol: i wish!

The key and locking adaptor weigh a bit! And each bolt is lighter compared to the stock one. The saving is in grams unfortunately.

those grams add up, particularly towards the end of the night down the pub. I bet they're worth at least a kilo each by last orders ;)

YMMV, but I'll just leave this here...

How much of a problem you'll get from galvanic corrosion, I guess we'll see

I've used titanium studs for years, and not once had an issue. They do need a decent lube on them though, but ultimately not had one bit of corrosion, ever. 

I think you could find issues with just about anything on the net these days.

I guess having used them before you know how to treat them to avoid the corrosion and galling, cool beans:).

I dropped that article on because not everyone is aware of titanium's "special needs".

The main thing is not to use an impact gun on them. No one ever says that, but its the worst thing you can do. And i bet the garages just dont care, and use an impact gun regardless.
