    Brake disc to wheel hub - 7Nm (but in reality you just nip it up a bit. You'll feel it when it's tight enough. It's only holding the disc in place before the caliper and wheel goes on, not really holding it in place as such.
    Brake calliper retaining frame to steering knuckle - 230Nm (otherwise known as FFT!) Don't forget to wire brush the bolt threads and reapply locking compound.
    Wheel to hub - 110Nm

    Suspension strut to suspension strut dome - 20Nm + 45° + 15°

    I think that's the main ones. Anything else is really just tight enough to what feels right.

    Does that mean they are stretch bolts ?
    More often than not does, when you have to turn though "XX°"
    If they are, do not re-use them, replace them.

    It sounds like they are. TIS quotes to use new bolts, so sounds like it.

    Oh, another torque setting...

    Attach suspension strut support tube (2) to steering knuckle
    • Tighten 2x new bolts and nuts
    Tighten 2x new screw connections, suspension strut support tube to steering knuckle, in 3 stages

    Tighten 2x new screw connection 50 Nm
    Tighten 2x new screw connection 85 Nm
    Tighten 2x new screw connection 75° + 15°
