    Z8 wheel lug torque is 120 +/- 10 Nm or 88.5 +/- 7.4 foot-pounds. Remember to tighten in a star pattern, use at least 2 steps to reach the final torque, and recheck after a few miles of driving.

    All BMWs (except E53, E65, E66) use the above mentioned lug torque. Since the hubs are the same on the Alpina and the Z8, the size of the lugs on the Alpina should be the same as those used on the Z8, therefor the Alpina should use the same torque spec as the Z8.

    Thanks, GM.
    Since the length of the nuts are different on the Alpina (as I found out when I went to order locks), I thought the torque specs might be different.
