Installing oem Dps

I have catless dps on my e92 335. While I was installing them last year I broke off 2 out of 4 of the bolts connecting the dps to the mid pipes cuz they were rusted. Anyways I wanted to put my oem pipes back on and was wondering if I can get some feedback on how to put them on since 2 of the bolts are broken but they are part of the oem dps.
Has anyone had this issue before?

MY guess would be to drill them out, insert new bolts/washers

Put it in a vice, cut the old stud flush with the flange, drill hole in center of stud, use punch and hammer to pound out old stud. The hole is to provide alignment for the punch and relieve some pressure.

Or get access to a press and proceed to remove the old one.

If you want a replacement stud, it is probably a PEM brand automotive stud or an equivalent.

Heat and a hammer work just as well, a bit quicker and less messy
