These torque specs appear to jump from section 27 (transfer box) to 61 (general electrical).

???

(Am looking for the suspension section which I believe is in the 30's.) :-?

When I haven't been able to find the BMW specified tightening torque for a fastener, I go by the standard torque for the fastener size and grade, and sometimes use loctite (blue or red, depending).

I got this from Chris Wright's post, "PDF Manual...." -- The suspension specs are in this +100MB file:
I only wish that, either this download or this post's download had the e65 specs in it. It does appear that I should be able to use the "max spec" and go from there, assuming I knew how to determine the charts.
New Link!: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B95IxH ... XU5LXg3Ymc (File Name: M6 Torque Specs.pdf)

This book is jam packed with info, and besides Torque Values, includes about every spec. you can think of for 3/5/6/7 Series Cars (including M cars) from the mid '80's, so don't let the file name fool you! Unfortunately, there are no bookmarks to help find your way around it. Spend some time scrolling through it just to see what is there.
