hi guys i have a 06 3.2 i run 40psi all round is this to much.
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
yep 225/40/18 5 spoke rs4/6 alloys
My fuel flap for a 2004 2wd 3dr 2.0TDi S-Line fitted with the same wheels and tyres says 33psi front and 30psi rear for the 18" wheels.... (different for the 16 & 17" options...)
My 1.4T 2009 Sportback courtesy car says 38 front 33 rear for the 18" wheels......
Wow , yeah 40 is a tad too much i think.
On my 1.4TFSi i`m running 33-32 all around
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....
I use 37 front, 33 rear, mainly driving solo at moderate speed, all feels good.
Ive got 39 front and 33 rear. Im guessing the pressures vary between 4wd and 2wd
