those are most probably original. they last a long time as long as you don't get oil on them. They are available from the dealership. Your parts guy is just an idiot!. they are all made of similar material. you can run the car without as I do have one with them rotted off, but not original looking. Besides, you'll need to remove the 12 nuts that are most probably rusted on and chances are you'll most probably remove some of the studs before the nuts give.
