M10 x 35mm for the FCAB bolts. Just go to your nearest dealer and buy them, part # 31-10-1-095-140. Shouldn't be more than $1 each.

dude youre awesome! Too bad ACE, OSH, and Home Depot all suck and don't have it.. I'm probably going to try to see if a M10 x 40mm will fit since those are the only ones I found. Thanks again!

Bolts have a hardness rating embossed on them, and the ones BMW uses on the suspension are a lot tougher than what you would find in the hardware store. These are critical to safety, and I doubt if the ones you bought from the hardware could safely handle the torque needed. Better just be safe and go to the dealer.
