Default M7 Top Engine Mount Pins V70 2.4 D5

Having just changed the Top Engine Mounting on my V70 2.4 D5 which was well goosed, I was surprised to discover that the two front facing set pins that hold the engine hoist bracket are M7 threaded.

Now how stupid is that! Drop one somewhere in the engine bay (I did) and you are in for a surprise. A fastener Company in Maryland USA stock 1,200,000 metric fasteners from 900 manufacturers and they don't have one. I have tried every avenue I can think of and only found some chinese cylinder head studs with M7 x 1mm pitch. yet the manufacturers are still churning these mounts out with M7.

I guess you have to drill and re-tap to M8 having paid top dollar for the part, or perhaps I am the only owner to have lost one?

If you know of one please let me know. I love originality.
