Thank you ! Don't hesitate to share it on m3cutters. Not sure I have an account there.
Also, not sure of how to handle updates to this file. Maybe you could update it on m3cutters when it gets updated here ?

Well that is a complicated matter. It does not to be a linear thing, AKA small torques should be OK, big torques can get messy real quick.
You can read a lot of things on the web about this, but no definitive answer.
I read somewhere that on small torques, you just make 10% less, and on big torques you can go with factory specs and it should be OK.
Anti-seize is not as bad as lubing the thread. Never use any oil if you cannot use a stretch gauge.
All the lubed threads are jointing torque + angle.

Yes, I will keep both. Easier to have just one file to update if there is a mistake / new torque to add.

Nice! Thank you for putting all the torque specs on there! I will have to print this out and put into a three ring binder. It'll go right next to the Bentley on my shelf in the garage!

Thread like this is why I'm more tempted to buy a second e46 m even if people are telling me I'm crazy for thinking about owning two of the same car.

Oh and I was thinking this thread was about torque at the wheel when clicking on the thread.

Yep, wheels to 120 Nm / 89 Ft Lbs

I went through the whole Bentley and wrote down all the torques from there. Some are wrong though since they made it for the regular E46 that has a different differential and so on... Tried to correct it from the TIS.

Tonight I will put the Ft Lbs / In Lbs version here.

If your going to go through the trouble for this, you may want to go in-lbs for values smaller that 16ft-lbs or so. For example, my 3/8in and 1/4in drive torque wrenches are 5-80ft-lbs and 20-200in-lbs ranges. Or maybe just list both ft-lb and in-lb below a certain torque. I know, crazy Americans

No problem. I was actually wondering when to give ft lb and in lb. You gave me the answer. Very helpful !
