Has it helped you find a better ride in the car?
I changed the pressures for my last run and it felt much better.
I think i was running to lower pressures before
36F / 40R is what i am running now.

I treat it as a safety warning - for sudden pressure loss - rather than to find a better ride.  Your pressure look about right.  My car says 37/44 for a fully laden car so that's what I've given the Turbo for the NT run.  I usually check with a decent guage rather than relying on the servo ones.

Interesting point about the safety, had not thought about that...

I was thinking it would help with getting cold and hot temps while on a run and seeing what was actually happening.
Then help find the better pressures for the car.

I also did not know how accurate these would be?
I spoke to the dealer and he said that the internal ones were much more accurate and that makes sense to me.

Mines accurate to +/- 1psi.

I cannot really tell the difference between 36 and 38psi etc on the road. I have set the pressures at 32F/34R on the m3.
