Torque values

Hi all! Quick question on torque settings for the drain plug on the oil pan and oil filter canister? Also torque settings on the lug nuts. All help is much appreciated.

Torque values
for a gen 1, R53

Engine oil drain plug to oil pan: 25Nm (18ft-lbs)
Cover to oil filter housing: 25Nm (18ft-lbs)

I use 98 ft-lbs +/-2 on OEM lug bolts.

Thanks for the info....the manual that came with this 2015 MCS is woefully lacking in pertinent info. I asked the service rep for the correct values and he didn't know, said he could go ask a tech but was too busy at that time. Guess I'm going to have to buy a Chilton type manual. Thanks again for your input, it sounds about right and gives me a good starting point.

The wheel lug value is higher for the R56 and F56. That value is listed in your owners manual.

Don't bother with a Chilton, or Haynes type manual. Bentley is the way to go. Not cheap, but worth every penny.

I thought that the R53 lug bolts were 78 ft-lbs. The oil drain and filter housing I'm not sure... I always just did 1.5 grunts as, especially for the filter housing, it's hard to get a ratchet handle on there, let alone a torque wrench.
