Technically you should. People have reused the bolts and gotten away with it. Its your choice...bolts are cheap...like 3 bucks each from 034 i think

For the peace of mind I would replace them. You dont want to have to R&R that tranny again to replace those bolts. The bolts are stretch bolts that shouldnt be reused iirc.

i have reused flywheel bolts, but i always replace pp bolts, 10.9 grade strength always. it's held up to my werks of art clutch setup fine to 300+ hp. but yeah they are stretch bolts.

VW should have them....but I bet they are like $10 bucks a piece. O34 will be cheaper to buy them from and fed ex overnight is probably like 20 bucks.

I didnt pay that much for them. Ill check my recepits when i get home from work, but i know i didnt spend $10 on each bolt. I also picked mine up from VW. I ususally tell them i have a 99 Passat.

I tried to find my receipts but no luck. But 034Motosports sells them for $2.50 each. You could order it through them or go down to your local vw/audi dealer. But I know theyre not $10.00 each.
