I had been following the Bentley manual specs of 100 Nm or 72 lb/ft for a while. Discussing this with my service advisor, I pressed him to make sure they torque the lugs properly to 100 Nm. He told me that the proper torque was 120 +/- 10 Nm, I doubted it. But, when I came in, he gave me a sheet printed out fromt he TIS CD, 5/2002 version. It seems as though this is an update, my TIS says 100 Nm.

Follow accordingly, all except E53, E65, and E66 are 120 +/- 10 Nm; E53, E65, and E66 are 140 +/- 10 Nm

Maybe there were reports of wheels falling off :dunno:
And they have realized that after four years ? :confused: I think it's right about time to knock some heads over in Munich.

I've never heard of that happening, but this is the new TIS :dunno:
The 'facelift' E46 got an improved suspension, do you think it's got to do with it ?
