That's maybe what it says (too lazy to go look), but mine handles much more
crisply at higher pressures (32-34). But what you should run is a function
of desired handling, ride, the tires, roads you drive over and kind of driving.
I think that Audi did an exceptionally nice job with the suspension in the
4000's, and they tolerate the higher pressures without getting annoyingly
