    I use 40-42psi front and 38-40 psi rear running standard suspension. This gives better turn-in in the dry, but the car will always be prone to understeer with 19s.

    I know on standard setup 30psi is the norm for S3 front and rear. I run 19" wheels with 235/35 and put in 32psi to compensate for the low profile. Isn't 40psi a bit high?
