love the German way...

clearly labelled nut... torque to 100Nm, then turn further to reference mark.... awesome...

Ferrari give you a hammer that's only good for 3 wheels then falls apart.

Yeah, the 100nm is for the emergency tightening procedure.  The actual setting is 600nm, so I have a 1m long torque wrench to do them up with.

I'm sure you're better versed with it than me, but just check your procedure to be safe.

It's more common practice now to use a "torque/angle" setting than a final torque.

The reason is stiction and friction... the actual torque applied can vary with the lubricant used and the surface condition and temperature, but the thread pitch won't change, so a low torque setting is less likely to vary much, followed by a known crush distance which is a calculation of thread pitch.
