My dealer didn't even carry them, they are included with a new valve cover and so is the gasket.

None of my bolts where painted "blue" wich indicated a replacement bolt except the ones holding the wire holder oddly enough.
Odd, according to Jason over at getbmwparts.com:

me: Hi jason, can you help me out, why is the 335i Valve cover gasket set so freakin expensive? what are the part#'s included in the packaging

Jason: here are the part #'s we include in our kit:

11127544369 bolts x 26

11127565286 gasket

11127548063 bolts x 3

and 11127556977 bolts x 2

me: o.O it's just odd that bolts cost that much cause the gasket itself is like 30 bucks

Jason: yeah

unfortunately, that's wha tyou're going to need

to change the gasket

me: is it a requirement to replace the bolts

Jason: yes

otherwise, you'll be doing the gasket again soon
