I got the BMW tool. The torque is not that simple: it involves pure tightening, then moving bars fully left then torquing.
Unfortunately the values are in the Reprom CD which I don't have with me. I'll try to remember and check.

The tool costs a fortune ($126.53 from Max BMW).

Does anyone know of a lower priced source for this tool?

Or modify a socket with a grinder. Easy enough and less waiting .
