Verify torque values

Since I don't have a Bentley manual, I want to verify the torque values for the brake calipers and wheels on a 2001 base.

What I was able to Google is the following:
  • Brake Caliper 10 mm bolts - 63 ft-lbs
  • Wheels - 93 ft-lbs

I just want to verify these are correct. (Before I start breaking bolts)
Thanks in advance

I know that wheel number is good.

Btw, porsche recommends replacing caliper bolts each time they're removed.

63 for the cal bolts is good too... They say to use new ones, but i've re-used most caliper bolts many times over as long as they are in good shape and the head isnt stripped or anything (of course they have to say that to cover their butts)
