I have reused every type of fastner they use.  They are concerned that you USE
Loctite, that's why they come preloaded.  Audi(and other manufacturers) can't
trust people to do the right thing.  Obviously you should always inspect and
reject any that look suspect but these fastners are of such quality that they
will outlast all of us.
This is just my opinion and I'd rather not listen to any legal consequences so
if it makes you feel better, definitely replace them, but do it with EQUAL or
BETTER grade only!  They are marked on the top with grade numbers.
