They are Torx bolts, T50 I think.  They will be a real pain to remove though.  If you're not confident you can remove them (access to heat may be needed) then it's probably best left to a garage.

When replacing these bolts they can be replaced with a hex heads bolt  kit that are much easier to get out/off next time (if needed) they are a little shorter and tend not to round off as the Torx ones may do. As tom said the Torx can be a pain to get out and one is a real pain to access. Wire brush and a good long soak them for a bit may help had in the end to get a garage to get mine off in the end they just rounded off
