Don't see that happening, unless you damage them. BMW master teck said the same. Said he only replaces screws if they are damaged. You have to figure, these are but in with only 7-7.5 lbs of torque...only way they can really come loose is if the threads are damaged. 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.
