BMW says 88lbs.
I have always used 90 on all my card. Never any problems.
When it comes to lining the threads that's up to you. I do and always will. Some don't. It's up to you.

It's nice to use an impacts tench for lug bolt removal but in my opinion that's is all. I install the lug bolts by hand and tighten them down with a 1/2" drive ratchet and then drop the car to the ground and then go around and torque all the bolt with a torque wrench

For those that don't have a digital screen, how do they know how much torque they are using. Or those that use a manual wrench, how do they know they are tightened properly ?

All torque wrenches allow you to set the desired ft/lb typically by rotating the handle and matching it to a specific numeric value. The range is engraved on the wrench. You use the torque wrench to tighten the bolts until you hear a clear audible "clicking" sound which means you're at that value.

exactly what he said is how they work. Idk something about impact wrenches scar eme when it comes to a specific torque value. I like them for some things but not for torquing bolts. something about manual torque wrenches like mentioned above ^ just seems so fail safe.
