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
