I'm really thinking it's about time to buy a Bentley for the A8q.

Before diving in to the timing belt job I decided to put the car on  
the lift and check for other serious money pits. In particular I had  
noticed a very faint rattle/clunk in the right front corner that I  
wanted to check out. Turns out it's time for a control arm party!  
Right front wheel lower rear arm is amazingly bad, and I've already  
got one to put on. Both right front upper arms are also slightly  
loose. Left front wheel upper rear is the only one on that side. Then  
it's also got a bad CV boot on each front axle.

So what I'm after are torque specs for the following:
All 4 control arms on both sides and both ends of each arm.
