If you do use a standard SAE Grade 8, you'd use the maximum torque for those and not the odd torque sequence called for in the instructions.
To be on the safe side, most of us will recommend the stretch bolt.
Maybe one of the mechanics on here can recommend what they use.
Alrighty makes sense, I just struggle with paying places like ECS 70 bucks for a full bolt kit but I'll hunt them down and plan on using oe vw ones. I think Im just gonna start with replacing the dogbone and go from there.

Try the on-line dealerships, you may find better pricing. Even try haggling with your local dealer.

I just did the two top mounts and the dogbone. I have a 2006 Golf with 220,000 plus miles of New England and mid-Atlantic roads on her Sprayed some penetrating oil on the bolts about 15 minutes before I started and had no issues changing any of the mounts. I am not a master mechanic, but Youtube is your friend and it wasn't a tough job, even at 20 degrees.

Got my stuff from IDparts. Good stuff, fair price and quick shipping.

PB Blaster is good stuff.
I sprayed my glow plugs for a couple days mostly in the AM going to work, leaving work again, and the last 2 nights when I got home.
The next morning the plugs came right out easier then I would have thought.
Don't think I will buy WD 40 any more.

And grade 8 is not a grade for metric bolts. You would want 10.9 as turbo mentioned.

Thanks, I mistakenly referenced an SAE grade 8 bolt, which would be fine, except they don't make those!

Any decent dog bone kit will come with new stretch bolts. You could gamble but you might end up with problems that just aren't worth skimping on a few $ worth of bolts.
