    Does anyone optimum pressures for the 3.2. Got mine 3 weeks ago and it felt great but now feels a bit soft, I think the sidewalls are flexing more. All my other A3s needed a couple of extra psi to drive better - could this be the same? Plus is it safe to put in more than 36psi in a tyre?

    isnt this written on the inside of the fuel cap? I usually keep mine at around the 32 psi mark

    My A3 has these figures on the filler cap it's fitted with 225/45/17 and they should be 32psi but i fine it handles better around 34psi but be careful not to over inflate or you'll get uneven tread wear.

    It is written inside the filler cap at 36psi front and 33 psi rear for normal load, but the car feels soft. My last A3 1.8TQ wore the shoulders of the tyre at audi pressures so were under-inflated.
