'11 128 Wheel Torque Specs?

Hi everyone,

Maybe this has been covered before, but does anybody know the recommended wheel torque specs for a 2011 128? I ordered snows & rims from Tirerack this week and would like to get things in order. We still have another month or so, but I want to be prepared for the white stuff. (Yuk!)

As long as we're on topic, I've been using 89 ft/lbs on my '06 330xi if anyone can confirm that also...

Maybe someone has a link to a website that has this info? I checked a couple, but the ones I found were behind in model years. ***As a suggestion to any Tirerack reps who might read this, it would be great if you could suggest putting such info on your site for the DIY'ers (or for us people who watch over their technician's shoulder.)

Thanks in advance!

You're saying 88-89 ft/lbs (or 130 NM) is correct for both cars then? (Thanks for the reply & clarification.)

It is for my 2000 M Coupe, and my 2008 135i, and last I checked, BMW hadn't changed any of their specs for torque settings.
