Timing setting

Guys i still have a headache with timing setting. Im following BMW TIS manuals but still cannot get the success. Just to be sure, that im doing everything correct, could you confirm with me my method is correct? We are talking about Setting, when is vanos and all other stuff on the car.

So what i do after remove Valve covers gaskets and timing case cover
- bank 1
1. set engine on OT (TDC)
2. Install timing tool on the camshaft
3. release main bolts on Vanos
4. move engine from OT to 10° position
5. on 10° position make on intake side 20nm, 80nm, 200°, release bolt and pretention 10nm.
6. same on outtake side. 20, 80, 200, release and pretention 10nm
7. NOW MOVE ENGINE from 10° TO OT (TDC)
8. Intake side 20nm, 80nm, 200°
9. Outtake side 20nm, 80nm, 200°
10. Remove all the tools, BANK ONE SHOULD BE DONE

- bank 2
Engine is on OT already so nr1 is
1. Install timing tool on the camshaft
2. release main bolts on Vanos
3. move engine from OT to 10° position
4. on 10° position make on intake side 20nm, 80nm, 200°, release bolt and pretention 10nm.
5. same on outtake side. 20, 80, 200, release and pretention 10nmsame on outtake side. 20, 80, 200, release and pretention 10nm
6. NOW MOVE ENGINE from 10° TO OT (TDC)
7. Intake side 20nm, 80nm, 200°
8. Outtake side 20nm, 80nm, 200°
9. Remove all the tools, BANK TWO SHOULD BE DONE, can check timing setting

CHECKING TIMING SETTING
- bank 2 checking first
1. Engine is on OT (TDC) so keep like this
2. Install timing tool (if all good, timing tool sit well on the position)
3. if all good in tolerance without gap, remove all tools
4. Crank engine 360°degrees in direction rotation
5. Set engine again on OT
6. Install timing tool.......check the gap.
7. If all good in tolerance, timing is correct and done.

Is it correct guy? ONe more think i would ask, its necesarry to remove spark plugs? TIS mentioned it, but i didnt do it.

Hope someone understand it a let me know, if my procedure is 100% correct. Thank to everybody
