    Are you on standard wheels and tyres?

    I think it is rather high but check out the suggested tyre pressures on in the inside of your fuel cap

    Had a look around the showroom this afternoon when I collected my car from service and every A3 from the 1.4T 3-door to the S3 said 38F 33R for the 18" wheels (and more for fully loaded).

    I can only conclude that Audi have revised their recomentations since my car was built in 2004, so I've upped my pressures tonight from the 33/30 on my fuel flap to the 38/33 on the current models....
