    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

    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...)

    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.
