I don't know what the torque spec is for the 200TQ, but I do know in spades
that the torque should be applied with the weight on the wheels.  Why?
Because to do otherwise put the torque force on the closest cvj with
sometimes disastrous results.  My 5KT was 280Nm/203ft lb which might be
roughly equivalent to 148 ft lb plus 1/4 turn.  

No matter, torque it only with the weight on the wheel.

 I just did this on my S6 (C4 chassis) and the torque spec in 
 the Bentley was 148 lb-ft PLUS 1/4 turn.  The type 44 would be 
 similar.  I would think that it should at least be higher than 
 147 lb-ft total torque.  My old Scirocco was 173 lb-ft.
