From TIS:

Brake caliper to steering knuckle
(screws lightly oiled, contact surfaces between brake caliper and steering knuckle cleaned and grease-free)

110 Nm.

It states if self locking or microencapsulated replace them.

I'm not aware that E53 uses either.

I reuse them.
Thanks for the input. As for the yield point, how would we know that at 110 Nm the material would not be at or passed yield.
Also, would you please explain what is meant by microencapsulated.
BTW, my mileage is 167000 miles!
Thanks
