Is there a way of getting stainless steel screw, bits and bolts to spruce up the bay a bit?

I don't know what you could change other than replacing like for like, the manifold chrome nuts are the worst for corrosion but these are expensive from BMW and alternatives look very odd,

the two screws and large washers that mount the a/c condenser always corrode but again I think you would struggle to find an alternative other than stock.

I will add more details for some of the screws and fixings later this week, also most parts are the same for the S54 regarding plastic clips etc.

That's a good spot, always annoys me how yellow and dirty they look!
