Best way to know that someone's post is reliable is to confirm what they tell you based upon the SOURCE they indicate the information came from (and learn how to use reliable sources ;-). The two MOST reliable sources of E9x repair procedures, including fastener torques are TIS and Bentley. Both can be found online at the links shown in the attached pdf for E9x References.

Bentley does NOT suggest that there is any brake caliper option on ANY E9x model, other than the single piston caliper fastened to the pad carrier by two 7mm hex socket head Guide Bolts. I believe that is the "Teves" Floating Caliper, and that is what I link from TIS below. If that does NOT look like your caliper, check the Brembo & TRW options in TIS.

BOTH Bentley & TIS provide the SAME torques:
1) 7 mm Hex Socket Head Guide Bolts: 30 Nm = 22 Ft-lb (Front & Rear)
2) Wheel Bolts: 120 Nm = 88.5 Ft-lb.

Bentley torques for those fasteners are found at page 340-13, p. 600 or pdf.
TIS procedures (Front & Rear); Guide Pin Torques (same for both); and Wheel Bolt Torques are found in the following TIS links:

The newtis site is gone, they say at the request of bmw.
A link from that page recommends a fairly expensive site.

Happened few months back - this thread's 3.5 yrs old!

gbalthrop spec'd the torques, above.
An interesting thing is that I've had the car since 2009.
2nd brake job; just doing pads, the rotors I put on look good,
the pads I put on are between 4 - 6mm.

I was refreshing my existing notes: gotta do something on breaks....
