So I replaced my subframe today. After removing the old one I discovered that the PO had used 8mm bolts with a nut and washer instead of the 10mm T50 bolts that it should have on one side of the bike. And on the other side one bolt broke off inside the frame of the bike when I was pulling it off.

So I went to the hardware store and grabbed 4 grade 10.9 M10x1.25 x2" bolts and used them all the way around. Much easier to get then ordering the proper bolts from the dealer or the internet. Cheaper as well, and I dont have to worry about those stupid torx rounding off. I drilled out the piece that was broken off in the frame.
To sum it up.
Was rigged by PO
Got new Grade 10.9 M10x1.25x2" Bolts to replace Factory T50 Torx bolts.
