area)? Helicoils are available at most any good nut and bolt supply.  They
are not cheap however.  I bought a set fro M12x1.5 (wheel bolt size for
most import cars except Audi) and it cost about 60-70 bucks with a tap,
and a few inserts.  Well worth it though if you plan to do a few of them. 
If you only need one or two, take it to a good european auto garage, and
ask them to do it for you.
