Tire pressure

My 328i arrived with 38.5psi front and 43.5 rear. This seems close to the 100mph sticker but way higher than the normal recommendation sticker. What tire pressure are you all using? Thanks.

Follow the placard for pressures. And remember that pressures vary with ambient temperature.

My dealership said they set the tire pressure at 39/44 for best possible performance. Seems a lot higher than the 32/35 sticker on the door

I check mine frequently and go with the sticker (not the 100mph speeds).
