Normal Oil Pressure

        Does anyone know what is considered normal oil pressure in a 5 
     cylinder Audi?.  My 86 Coupe GT reads 4.5 to 5 bar at idle.  Any RPM 
     above idle pegs the gauge.  I never thought too much about it since 
     the gauge has read this way since the day I drove it out of the 
     showroom.  A friend of mine is having her Firebird "fixed" because of 
     the same indication and now it has me wondering.  Is a pegged oil 
     pressure gauge normal in Audis??  I'm sure I don't have an oil 
     pressure problem, at least not one that has continued for the last 10
