If the heads aren't leaking, leave them alone.   If they are leaking
a re-torque might help.   The retorque procedure was mentioned on this
list about 2 weeks ago...

 1) Unfasten *one* nut
 2) Tighten nut to 20 Nm
 3) Tighten nut an additional 180 degrees
 4) repeat for other nuts in a crosswize pattern.
 5) Unfasten/retighten M 10 screw to 40 Nm

That's from the BMW service manual.   Others on this list prefer to
torque to fixed value.
