The facelift 190's did have different bolts, so you'll be alright. However if you want to change them anyway it's not an issue & the bolts themselves are less than £1 each I believe.

As a general rule of thumb how often should the lift bolts be replaced on the newer model?

Not sure on the torque settings, as mine were done during my stage 2 cams being fitted.

As far as I am aware, once you have the new type lift bolts you should need to change them again unless you can't get Lift to engage & stay engaged.
